Xfig missing charset in edgy

After upgrading from Kubuntu Dapper to Kubuntu Edgy, xfig complains
about missing charsets upon loading and upon zooming in or out.  On
screen, the fonts are very small and ugly (like the old-time xterm
fonts).  An example of an Xfig error message is:

Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion
Warning: Cannot convert string
to type FontSet

When I upgraded from Dapper to Edgy (using the 3-step apt-get method
described in the R6.10 announcement), there were several error messages
about fonts and locales, mostly thrown by perl, but there may have been
others.  This occurred on two separate computers, and both now have the
Xfig problem.

Does anyone know a solution or where to start looking for one?
