I got this too when I first installed icecat.
I am not sure why, but I got no readable presentation
from icecat until I had done
 guix install font-dejavu

The steps prior to that, and after were:

 guix package -i nss-certs
 guix upgrade icecat
 guix install fontconfig
 guix install libxfont
 guix install font-dejavu -->> and that gave icecat font
 guix install moka-icon-theme
 guix install hicolor-icon-theme
 guix install less

libxfont notably did nothing for me, but idk if fontconfig
was either interfered or did something good.

You might consider installing font-dejavu

After getting a usable display, there was another error produced by
an add-on, which I was able to disable from the menu at the top right.
Sorry not to remember details on that.

I generally dislike add-ons or anything else that comes preconfigured
to do any action without my consent. R_my_F, icecat ;-/

Jesse's fc-list suggestion indicates that the Nimbus fonts ought to
come in by
 guix install gs-fonts

maybe that would work as well as or better than
 guix install font-dejavu

Idk :)
