NetBSD office1. 5.99.24 NetBSD 5.99.24 (GENERIC) #0: Wed Mar 17 03:46:41 UTC 2010 amd64
I'm running a "Full Installation" of NetBSD 5.0.1 amd64 that I upgraded to 5.99.24.  After installing the openbox window manager I tried to install gnome-terminal, but when trying to start it I got the following error:

ERROR:terminal-app.c:1445:terminal_app_init: assertion failed:
(app->system_font_desc != NULL)
[1] Abort trap (core dumped) gnome-terminal

After doing some searching I found this similar Gentoo bug [1] which has the solution of adding libgnome as a dependency.  I then installed the binary libgnome through pkg_add and gnome-terminal now works as expected.

Install just gnome-terminal without any other parts of gnome.
libgnome should probably be added as a dependency to gnome-terminal
