Thanks a lot for your research and findings!

As of
I had uninstalled Noto and instead installed IPA fonts _and_ IPAex fonts.
After uninstalling IPAex fonts - first the test-case worked and now I
have success on a full `make doc'.

Any chance to get a more meaningful error-message?
Or is there any criterion we could select such problematic fonts?

Again many thanks,
