Follow-up Comment #9, bug #33241 (project xboard):

after reading the strace output, which is quite cryptic to me, and considering
arun's earlier suggestion, i changed the last seven sections of all font
related specs into * in ~/.xboardrc. miraculously, xboard started.

the font were matched to -microsoft-cp1252 before, and it's now -iso8859-1

sorry for all the fuss i have created. anyway, although this seems to be
working now, removing ~/.xboardrc totally would still result in a "Unable to
create font set" error.

the new strace file is here: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/390425/
