It would be better if you didn't report until you've done the bisect.  It just means we have to set it to NEEDINFO and there's a chance of losing track of the bug report.

    Set default font path with fontutil 1.1 and fontpath.d

    Look for $sysconfdir/X11/fontpath.d and, if it exists, set it to the
    default font path as a catalogue: entry. Based on app/xfs commit
    c66a46e35ae40a23ad9acee838ab42300eddbd67.

    Otherwise, use the font-util 1.1 macros to determine the system
    fontrootdir and standard subdirectories, or let the user configure it
    and the subdirectories themselves.

    This adds a build-time (or at least an autoconf/autogen time) dependency
    on font-util, and changes the --with-fontdir argument to --with-fontrootdir.

So it's a font problem, not a driver problem. Updating product/component.

There's not really much to go on here.  You need to provide more information.

What fontdir was being found before the change in font-util?  What fontdir is 
being found now?  What are the differences between them?  What font is Google 
Earth trying to use?

Jeremy, I know little about font,font-util and fontdir. Would you like to tell me how to get the information?
