I opened a similar bug:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=476531

It was fixed by adding xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi and
xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-100dpi to the "Requires:" list of the package
(in my case DDD).

I don't know the history on it, but I suspect that one or the other of
these two packages was once a part of the core Xorg packages and was
later broken out. Individual packages relying on these fonts were not
updated to be aware of the change.
