Linux foo 3.10.0-514.26.1.1chaos.ch6_1.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Jun 29 15:16:26 PDT 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I installed pkgsrc 2017Q3 on a RHEL 7.3 system and installed emacs25 from source. When I launch it, all of the fonts rendered by gtk+3 are gone and there are boxes where they should be, i.e., the menubar and pull-down menus only have boxes however the Emacs buffer window renders fine. If I had to guess, fonts are missing or misplaced. However, I don't know how to troubleshoot either of those issues, especially since this is on a server that I do not have administrative access of. Thank you for your help with this. I did some Googling and looking through the bug archives and couldn't find the solution. 

Kind regards,
# install pkgsrc
pushd pkgsrc/bootstrap
./bootstrap --abi=64 \
  --prefer-pkgsrc=yes \
  --unprivileged \
  --prefix=/path/to/foo \

# install emacs25
pushd pkgsrc/editors/emacs25
bmake install clean clean-depends
