Unable to load any usable fontset

Hello all,

I am trying to run an emacs on a remote server, forwarding the display to my 
box. I am not the guy who installed emacs on that server, but I have root 
access if I need to fix anything. When I try to run xemacs (gnu emacs opens 
inside the terminal, which is not the behaviour I'm used to from another 
remote server, where gnu emacs opens its own window on my display properly) I 
get this error:

Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset

I'm using XEmacs 21.1 (patch 14) "Cuyahoga Valley" [Lucid] (i386-suse-linux, 
Mule) of Sat Jun 23 2001. Could anyone maybe quickly tell me where to look? 

In case the backtrace is relevant, I appended it to the end of this mail. 

Besides opening inside the terminal, the GNU emacs behaves very oddly in many 
other ways too. It doesn't accept any F key for instance and complains about 
not finding /usr/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias (that /locale/ dir doesn't exist 
on that box at all.) In case I will have to use gnuemacs in a terminal, what 
would be a fix to that?
