Wine: No text in dialog boxes


I installed Wine 0.9.20 on gentoo. Whenever there is text in dialog boxes such as regedit/winecfg it doesn't show up. I have reinstalled it with no luck. Here is a screenshot:

i fixed my problem in gentoo by emerge freefonts, I assume installing freefonts on any distro would fix the problem, hopefully this helps someone.

this is wat i did!!

i had posted the same question in another forum,thanks to YOURI who patiently answered my questions,i am able to do something now,
the font problem can be fixed by copying all the font files present in the c:\windows\fonts to .wine/drive_c/fonts.

I fixed my issue for root

I added wine ~x86 and fontforge ~x86 to the /etc/portage/package.keywords
then

--update --deep wine fontforge

Now root can see fonts, but other users cannot, what the hell is going on??

I tried your suggestion and it worked well on only root, but msn messenger doesn't work.
I tried latest version and version 6.

thanks for help..

I reported a bug wine-bugs. They sent me this reply and I hope it would be of benefit:

If you compiled Wine yourself - you were missing Fontforge. Run './configure
--verbose' and fix all the identified problems.
