First we need to find out what font you are trying to use. Can you
start 23.1 that works and in *scratch* evaluate

(frame-parameter nil 'font)

You bet. I started emacs (using emacs -Q) and evaluated the above code.
Here is the result:

-unknown-DejaVu Sans Mono-normal-normal-normal-*-16-*-*-*-m-0-iso10646-1

Hmm. I think you must debug this, I'm trying to figure out where.
Does starting with -fn Monospace-12 work?
$ emacs -Q -fn Monospace-12
Arithmetic error

Can you start gdb on emacs and set a breakpoint in
x_default_font_parameter? A session would look something like:
(gdb) b x_default_font_parameter
(gdb) r -Q
break in x_default_font_parameter

And then type n to step through and print out variables as they are
(gdb) p font
(gdb) pr

(gdb) p system_font

I will do this and let you know.

No need now.

I've attached a copy of my config.log file (bzipped). I am running
emacs-23.1.90 on a Fedora 11 system under KDE 4.3.3.

Thanks, I found the problem after installing Fedora 11 with KDE. Please test again with an updated Emacs.
