WineX issue

Hey all,
I just installed WineX using the newest CVS build, and run into the following error when I run anything:

:~/c$ cvswinex SteamInstall.exe
err:font:Fontconfig_Init Fontconfig support was not compiled in at compile time.
err:font:FTAlias_FindBestBuiltins Could not create alias for serif fonts
Unable to find a sufficient number of fonts available to FreeType.
FreeType will not be loaded as a result.
FreeType could not be loaded.
This is not necessarily a fatal error, however some
applications require FreeType to be installed and
may not function or display text correctly otherwise.
Please consult the Cedega Font FAQ for more details
about this problem
wine: Unhandled exception, starting debugger...
err:win:GetDesktopWindow Wine init error: either you're trying to use an invalid native USER.EXE config, or some graphics/GUI libraries or DLLs didn't initialize properly. Aborting.
fixme:xrender:X11DRV_XRender_Finalize Free cached glyphsets

Any ideas on how to fix this?

I don't want to use the latest stable version of winex because then I have to pay.
