Description of problem:
system-config-lvm depends on the availability of certain fonts but does not list
this requirement in its RPM spec. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a minimal install of FC4 
2. yum install xorg-x11-xauth (necessary for ssh)
3. yum install system-config-lvm
4. ssh -Y to the machine from within an X session
5. run system-config-lvm
Actual results:
system-config-lvm outputs:
No fonts found; this probably means that the fontconfig
library is not correctly configured. You may need to
edit the fonts.conf configuration file. More information
about fontconfig can be found in the fontconfig(3) manual
page and on http://fontconfig.org

Expected results:
system-config-lvm should start properly.

Additional info:
as a workaround do 'yum install urw-fonts'.
