I am getting a puzzling warning from an otherwise functional and brand-new 
compilation of xdvik (the latest CTAN version). 

The messages are: 

Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*" to type FontStruct 
Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-*" to type FontStruct 

When Emacs 22.3 gave me something similar, I cured it with some xset lines to fill-out the font repertory, and the result of an xslfonts gives: 

So what is xdvik looking for, and where? It ought to be satisfied with one or other of those declarations. 

I realize that some may find this question to be only marginally TeX related, but xdvik is one of the best tools in a TeX tool kit.
