Can you "echo $LANG" and "cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n"

It's likely that you have an older version of Xlib that doesn't recognize
iso885915, this was fixed recently.

+Can you "echo $LANG" and "cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n"

echo $LANG

cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n

My XFree packages are just the ones shipped with skipjack2.
Which package(s) should I upgrade?
XFree86-libs ?
Or I need to upgrade all XFree packages?

Could you try the control-center- package in RawHide? I believe
that the theme selector in this package should fix your problem.
(It's not related to X, the problem is that the old theme selector
wrote font= lines into ~/.gtkrc, but to work with non-iso-8859-1 locales,
it needed to write fontset= lines.)

The control-center- package in RawHide fixes the bug.
Thank you.
