I recently updated, and suddenly GVim is complaining about font problems:
Code:

$ gvim
Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion
Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset
Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion
Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset
Error: Aborting: no fontset found

Everything worked fine before, and I didn't change any system settings (like locale) before the update. If I force the locale to either "C" or "en_US" (rather than the default "en_US.utf8"), then GVim opens fine. So this works:
Code:

$ LC_ALL=en_US gvim

But it feels really hack-ish to always call GVim with a forced, non-UTF8 locale! I have re-sourced '/etc/profile', and rebooted, and even rebuilt the toolchain and emerged "--emptytree world", but nothing changes GVim's refusal to start with the "en_US.utf8" locale.

Here is some (hopefully) relevant info:
Code:

$ locale
LANG=en_US.utf8
LC_CTYPE="en_US.utf8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.utf8"
LC_TIME="en_US.utf8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.utf8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.utf8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.utf8"
LC_PAPER="en_US.utf8"
LC_NAME="en_US.utf8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US.utf8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.utf8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.utf8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.utf8"
LC_ALL=

Code:

$ locale -a
C
en_US
en_US.iso88591
en_US.utf8
POSIX

Code:

$ eselect locale list
Available targets for the LANG variable:
  [1]   C
  [2]   en_US
  [3]   en_US.iso88591
  [4]   en_US.utf8 *
  [5]   POSIX
  [ ]   (free form)

Code:

$ cat /etc/env.d/02locale
# Configuration file for eselect
# This file has been automatically generated.
LANG="en_US.utf8"

Code:

$ cat /etc/locale.gen | egrep -v "^#"
en_US ISO-8859-1
en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8


So, can someone help me with my new GVim font/locale problem?

Much appreciated,
Bruce.

p.s.:

If it is of any interest or help, the problem first appeared after the following packages were emerged:
Code:

$ find /var/log/portage -maxdepth 1 -type f -newer /var/log/portage/net-analyzer:nmap-7.40:20170721-165934.log ! -newer /var/log/portage/sys-apps:openrc-0.28:20171005-003455.log | xargs ls -ltr | tr -s ' ' | cut -d' ' -f9- | sed 's/^\/var\/log\/portage\///' | sed 's/-[0-9].*$//' | sort | uniq

What are the USE flags for Gvim? What is in .gvimrc?

Searching inet shows that such problems happen if there's some problem with installed fonts (Gvim can not find font). Alternative problem is with the toolkit used for Gvim.

So I would recommend to try and compile Gvim with GTK2 toolkit. If this does not remove problem, then check which font Gvim wants to have and see if this font is available. Note, different toolkits use different ways to specify font name.
