Problem with fonts after upgrading to Pango 1.4.1

Ok, I am completely new to linux and I am having a problem with fonts in gnome. I am working on a linux RedHat 9 machine. I just installed gxine. It required pango so I installed pango 1.4.1 from a tar.gz source. That worked fine. But now when I run the graphic interface (using startx) I see the icons but no fonts. After login out I receive the following message:

Cannot load module /usr/lib/pango/1.2.0/modules/
/usr/lib/pango/1.2.0/modules/ cannot open shared object
file: No such file or directory

/usr/lib/pango/1.2.0/modules/ indeed does not exist. I was dumb enough to erase all that after installing pango 1.4.1. So now what I have is /usr/lib/pango-1.4.1/modules/
I do not know how to fix the problem so that the correct module is loaded and I can get my fonts back. Is there a way to fix it that does not require uninstalling pango 1.4.1 and going back to 1.2.0? After looking at previous threads all I find is people uninstalling pango and going back to the previous version. I would like to stick with 1.4.1 as it is the one that gxine is using.

Can someone please help me!
