Here is the exact error message:

[root@guest1 ~]# authconfig-gtk

(authconfig-gtk.py:2487): libglade-WARNING **: Could not load support for
`gnome': libgnome.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
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

It is really questionable if authconfig-gtk should directly require these fonts.
They should probably be rather required by libglade2 or another package in the
dependency chain.
