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
