Thanks for the report.  Upstream X.Org X11 was installing the app-defaults
files to FHS unfriendly locations.  It's taken a while to get things fixed,
but the X11R7 RC4 release has most if not all of the issues ironed out now.

Please upgrade all packages to the latest in rawhide, and the issue should
probably be resolved now.  Just for documentive purposes, the new proper
location for app-defaults files is %{_datadir}/X11/app-defaults which
expands to /usr/share/X11/app-defaults normally.

Once you've upgraded, please reboot and test any applications that had
app-defaults related problems.  If the xfontsel problem persists, please
update the report with any new details and report back.

Thanks again!

This problem was filed against 0.99.2-2 of Xt, however there have been
a number of updates to the entire X11R7 release since the time this was
filed, many of which dealt with misplaced app-defaults files, or applications
and libs looking in the wrong place for them.

It is currently believed that all such X11R7 libraries and applications present
in rawhide have had this problem resolved for quite some time now.  Please
update to the latest packages, and if the problem is still present, reopen
the bug report and I'll reinvestigate libXt et al.
