As a first guess I would put the blame on gtk.

Try to compile emacs again, but this time with the lucid toolkit.

./configure --with-x-toolkit=lucid  ; make ; make install

In most distros you don't need to compile since there is an
emacs24-lucid or emacs-lucid package, but since you are on RHEL
you may need to compile it yourself.

If that doesn't work try emacs -nw on the terminal, to see
if it displays letters ok.
