This basically means, that McCLIM can't find ttf fonts (i.e fc-match is
not present on the system, nor fonts are put in a standard path).

You may try `font-autoconfigure' branch on the main repository and
check, if it works any better (it has improved font support), provide
the correct path to the ttf files (you will be asked for that later), or
use "ugly" fonts by issuing:

(pushnew :mcclim-ugly *features*)

before loading McCLIM (it will use only X fonts).

Since `font-autoconfigure' branch will be probably merged soon, I'd

1. trying with this new branch (put McCLIM in

2. If it doesn't help, installing fc-match which helps to autodetect
where the fonts are

3. Find out and provide the correct path to the ttf fonts directory
(there is an appropriate restart proposed when needed)

4. If none of these work, please provide more details (you may use
mcclim-ugly to work with McCLIM, but no truetype fonts will be used)
