Wireshark 1.6.1 does not start on Solaris 10

Fresh installation of Solaris 10 and wireshark (from sunfreeware.com) just cannot start:

root@am1slc01 # wireshark 
No fonts found; this probably means that the fontconfig
library is not correctly configured. You may need to
edit the fonts.conf configuration file. More information
about fontconfig can be found in the fontconfig(3) manual
page and on http://fontconfig.org

Quick and dirty solution:

root@am1slc01 # cp -p /usr/local/etc/fonts/fonts.conf /usr/local/etc/fonts/fonts.conf.bak
root@am1slc01 # cp -p /etc/fonts/fonts.conf /usr/local/etc/fonts/fonts.conf
root@am1slc01 # wireshark 

Works but do you have any other ideas?

Cheers
