Thanks for the reply. Though the solution was not the one You've mentioned, 
I've found the real one on freebsdforums.org. Just for the archive: 

Fontconfig uses a configuration file named fonts.conf, xft loads fonts 
according to this file. Though the configuration was good for native 
application (for they have a differend version installed with the native 
port in /usr/X11R6/etc/fonts/fonts.conf), the emulated opera found another 
one like /usr/compat/etc/fonts/fonts.conf. You only have to symlink the native 
to the other one, and everything's OK. Maybe this should be done by the linux 
port automatically.

Peter
