Description of problem:

on fully installed & updated i386 & x86_64 Fedora 8 systems, I found the 
following links BROKEN in /etc/X11/fontpath.d/

xorg-x11-fonts-100dpi:unscaled:pri=30 -> 
xorg-x11-fonts-misc:unscaled:pri=10 -> /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled

This may be caused by incorrect installation scripts of



A workaround is to add:

Section "Files"
    FontPath        "/usr/share/X11/fonts/misc"
    FontPath        "/usr/share/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled"
    FontPath        "/usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi"
    FontPath        "/usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"

to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
