Yes, but what exactly is the font name database? Does it search all
X11 fonts ? Or does it dearch the fonts compiled in into the glibc ?

This does not help. Again: If I test the same program on Scientific Linux
I see at least the cyrillic letters. And I think and think: "What's
the difference between my Gentoo system and the Scientific Linux
system?. Which library, which database differs ?"
