I know this is a bit of an old post, but I figured I'd reply since I was just dealing with the same issue myself and managed to get it running.

It looks like it's related to a missing dependency from Angband proper around 2010.

There's a solution for Debian based systems here. tl;dr : install xfonts-base

On my laptop running Fedora 21 / x86_64, I got it working by installing xorg-x11-apps (I think it was xorg-x11-fonts-misc that was installed as a dependency that actually did it so that might be suficient).

Hope that might help someone!
