Hi, Chong Yidong,
Sorry, since I've reported the issue, I've made a lot of changes to
the system, on unrelated matter. Now I'm using Gnome on Debian
squeeze/sid (a different desktop environment, different kernel etc.).
I've installed Emacs24 from Debian testing, and it doesn't show the
same behavior as before, however, if I compile on my own, - still the
same problem with fonts.
Using the configuration option you suggested, I was prompted for
missing library - tifflib. I've then installed tifflib5-dev from
Debian. The configuration was successful afterwards.
I attach the screenshot of how the version I compiled looks.
