Starting angband from the console without any options produces this error: angband: Couldn't load the requested font. (10x20)

The workaround is to use angband -msdl, because -mx11 does not work as well.

Additional info:
* Latest angband 4.2.1

Steps to reproduce:
- Just type angband in the console

If you install xorg-mkfontscale then restart the X server does angband then start from the console?
