[plt-scheme] drscheme in Xorg-7.0?

There is a good chance that a font is missing (though segfaulting when a
font is missing is not really the easiest to debug behavior). I have one
image with almost every font package in portage installed, and it
doesn't happen there.

I haven't had time to try to track down which font is missing, but I
will see what I can do when I get some free time.
