Compiling ratpoison with "--x-includes=/usr/include" and
"--x-libraries=/usr/lib" has no visible effect -- ratpoison still fails to
start and it gives the same error message about not being able to load the
fixed font.

I installed strace, although I'm not familiar with it.

Trying to start X with "strace startx 2>&1 | grep -i enoent | grep fixed" gives
no output.

Trying to start X with "strace startx 2>&1 | grep -i enoent" gives the
following output:

access("/etc/ld.so.preload", R_OK)      = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/lib/gconv/gconv-modules.cache", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file
or directory)
stat64("/sbin/xauth", 0xbfdc64e4)       = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat64("/usr/sbin/xauth", 0xbfdc64e4)   = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat64("/usr/local/sbin/xauth", 0xbfdc64e4) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or
directory)
stat64("/bin/xauth", 0xbfdc64e4)        = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat64("/sbin/xinit", 0xbfdc68f4)       = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat64("/usr/sbin/xinit", 0xbfdc68f4)   = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat64("/usr/local/sbin/xinit", 0xbfdc68f4) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or
directory)
stat64("/bin/xinit", 0xbfdc68f4)        = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat64("/sbin/rm", 0xbfdc65f4)          = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat64("/usr/sbin/rm", 0xbfdc65f4)      = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat64("/usr/local/sbin/rm", 0xbfdc65f4) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or
directory)

I noticed that ratpoison has "--enable-debug" configure option, so I cast
ratpoison with that option enabled. Then "startx" again failed to start
ratpoison, but this time it gave the following output:

ratpoison:main.c:664: debug: _NET_WM_PID = 247
ratpoison:main.c:666: debug: _NET_SUPPORTED = 248
ratpoison: Cannot load font -*-fixed-bold-r-normal-*-15-*-*-*-c-*-*-*.

These experiments didn't make me any wiser, I'm afraid. :-(
