I finally got Xvnc to compile, but now I get the error message:

failed to set default font path
'/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/'
Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'

I tried uncompressing the fonts is misc, but that didn't help.  What
am I doing wrong.  The font path is correct!

Thanks.
