I'll take a look, but I'll make you deal.

you file a bug @ http://bugzilla.redhat.com/ against fedora/xforms
documenting the problem, and I promise to release an update that fixes
it. :)

For me, the specific piece that helped most was:

yum install xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi

(I used geomview application as a test-case).

So, adding this as a dependency to xforms may be the best way to go at this point.

(I suppose it's wishful to think xforms might gain support for fontconfig any time soon?)
