The problem, as can be seen in bug 3842, is that Wine defaults
to using fonts that it "knows about", primarily truetype fonts.

Some dialogs, like winecfg that look for the "default" font 
desperately want some kind of TrueType font, preferably Arial,
and will *never* fall back on using X window system fonts for
some reason, even though some of the fonts there are clearly a
better choice.

If no suiting font at all can be found, wine will even fall back
to using quadratic placeholders.

There ought to be a mechanism which substitutes bad font 
decisions for X window fonts when there are better alternatives.
