Description of problem:
xpdf has an annoying habit to announce every time when a pdf file
Warning: Cannot convert string
"-*-courier-medium-r-normal--12-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct
Guess what? 'xfd -fn ...' also has problems with that string although
"-*-courier-medium-r-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1" is not an issue.
Attached patch shuts that down. It is possibly a bit excessive.
OTOH xfd does not have any complaints too.
