I followed exactly the procedure described by Dennis Leeuw at:
Each step was followed exactly and command were cut and pasted.
I downloaded gnustep-examples.0.9.7.tar.gz.
Running make for instance on Finger results in etc.
When run, the main window appears with the graphic buttons.
However, there is no text anywhere. Not in the main window. Not
in the menu.
This happens with all the example programs.
If anyone can tell me what I've done incorrectly I'd appreciate it.

To answer my own problem:

The instructions for building gnustep-back are for both xlib and art.
Step #3 says to set the default backend to art. As soon as I went into
~/GNUstep/Defaults/.GNUstepDefaults and changed the backend to xlib
it all worked.

You have to install Font packages for the art backend. Did the instructions say to do that? I would think art would give some kind of warning, but maybe it doesn't I'll have to test that out...
