Buffers displaying squares instead of fonts

I installed emacs-21.3 compiled from source on my Debian Linux stable box. It works fine from console, but in X the buffers display all squares instead of fonts. The menus are readable (fonts instead of squares). I'm getting the following error on startup:

Warning: Cannot convert string 
"-*-helvetica-medium-r-*--*-120-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type

I don't have the font in emacs.conf, so I don't know why it's trying to load it. I have another font listed as the default face font I've tried to load in other fonts but get the same results. I'm assuming the error is that it's unable to load fonts from xfs, or the fonts it's trying to load aren't there, but I may be wrong.
