Begining on line , you have the following:

R_OK) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)
--- SIGSEGV {si_signo=SIGSEGV, si_code=SEGV_MAPERR, si_addr=0x88} ---
rt_sigaction(SIGSEGV, {sa_handler=SIG_DFL, sa_mask=[SEGV], 
sa_flags=SA_RESTORER|SA_RESTART, sa_restorer=0x7f6f866636a0}, 
{sa_handler=0x56274dd59dc0, sa_mask=~[KILL STOP RTMIN RT_1], 
sa_flags=SA_RESTORER|SA_ONSTACK|SA_SIGINFO, sa_restorer=0x7f6f869d40f0}, 8) = 0

To me, that looks like the permissions on that .ttf are wrong, and emacs
is not handling the problem gracefully. So, I would start by looking at
the permissions on that file.
