missing fonts

I have been having some problems with a few programs in x. They are not able to find the font libraries. happens w/ vim, emacs, xmms. I have both gtk+-1.2.10 & gtk+-2.0.5
and am wondering if that has anything to do with it, but I just don't know where to start. here's what i get from xmms:

Gdk-WARNING **: Missing charsets in FontSet creation

Gdk-WARNING **: ISO8859-1

** CRITICAL **: Couldn't open playlist font

and in the ~/.xmms/config file it says the following:


I think it may also be due to XF86Config, what do you think?
