Unhappy default font fixed prob

Well, I've been all over these forums and the net, and can't find out how to solve my the "can not open default font 'fixed'" prob.

I have just done lfs, and XF86config lists all the font paths.
I have tried switching the font paths with:

fontpath "unix/:7110"

And started Xserver, and it found the server ok, just couldn't find the font 'fixed'.

lfs is on a 4 gig partition with 50% free!

Anyone have any other ideas please??
