Hello again, well I downloaded:

font-adobe-100dpi-1.0.0.tar.bz2  font-misc-misc-1.0.0.tar.bz2
font-adobe-75dpi-1.0.0.tar.bz2   font-util-1.0.1.tar.bz2
font-dec-misc-1.0.0.tar.bz2      font-xfree86-type1-1.0.0.tar.bz2

Installed these then reinstalled fontconfig (2.5.0) with pointers to all 
of my font directories (--default --with font options in configure) in
pretty much the order they occur in xorg.conf and things are looking 
much better.

Thanks and kind regards,
