You're on the right track though. Quite a few E themes also come with
their required fonts in the theme trees.

We're still left with the original puzzle: What did we upgrade that
caused perfectly working font's to go screwy? I run the same E theme
(Debian-E plug plug) on 3 arch's (x86/PPC/SPARC) but only my SPARC box
has been affected by whatever occured.

If I could work out how the problem occured and what package was at fault
I'd log a bug report :)
