The fonts have moved to /usr/share/fonts. Change your font section in
in /etc/X11/xorg.conf accordingly.

This bug affects everyone who has ever edited their xorg.conf file as
Xorg on update to the new modular version does not offer a choice
between old and new config file, but by default uses teh old conf file.
