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.
