Summary0008403: Font environment messed up

Suddenly some apps (particularly web browsers, noted this in Chromium) show ugly font selections for content. If I open preferences for this browser, look and feel section shows "Custom" settings for every font, which I've never changed. It's like some font is missing or the environment not correctly set up. No errors on console though.

I believe this may be related to recent libfreetype upgrade.

Sorry for not being too specific about this.
