Something's wrong with the fonts of a default F10 installation. :-(
Compared with F10 development (Nov 14th) it rejects my customised
fonts for xterm and Emacs. Other users have noticed it, too.
Emacs is affected by it even with defaults. Its built-in font
choices give "Not found". Somebody in bugzilla suggests a hardcoded
dependency on xorg-x11-fonts-misc, but it doesn't suffice IMO.
Additionally, my first F10 installation gives poor font rendering
quality in Firefox (and Emacs, for example). Comparing the list
of installed fonts packages with my Rawhide inst is the first thing
I'll do.
