Emacs 22 (in F10) uses the legacy Xorg fonts, so you need to install
those. Start with a

yum install xorg-x11-fonts-misc

and depending on what fonts you're wanting to use, you may need some of

xorg-x11-fonts-100dpi
  xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-100dpi
  xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi
  xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-14-100dpi
  xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-14-75dpi
  xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-15-100dpi
  xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-15-75dpi
  xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-2-100dpi
  xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-2-75dpi
  xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-9-100dpi
  xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-9-75dpi
  xorg-x11-fonts-Type1
  xorg-x11-fonts-cyrillic.noarch
  xorg-x11-fonts-ethiopic.noarch

This is a packaging bug with Emacs. Alas the emacs package is
presently unmaintained, but there's a few of us awaiting approval to
take the package over, at which point the bug will get fixed.
