To update my previous post, there's this section in echomixer.c :

  gtk_init(&argc, &argv);
  if (!fnt) {
    printf("Cannot find the font\n");

Does anybody know what specific gtk app/toolkit this would relate to?  I have installed gtk+, gtk+devel, gtk+extra, gtk+extra-devel, gtk2, gtk2-devel, etc...   The font name in the gdk_font_load looks like an X font.

Ah!  Got it.  Had to install xorg-x11-fonts-misc.

Nevermind...   If anybody else runs into this problem, that's the fix.  

Fernando, would it make sense to add xorg-x11-fonts-misc as a planetccrma-apps metapackage dependency?  Just a thought.
