For some reason, DrScheme is looking at only traditional X11 fonts, and
not fontconfig fonts. Worse, on DTU, it can't find "-*-lucida" or
"-*-courier", and whatever ends up being the default is (I guess) blank
for ASCII characters.

Just to make sure that DrScheme is really compiled for Xft, can you
send me your entire "configure_output.txt" and "config.log"? Maybe
something later is disabling it.
