Very likely due to the default XFT configuration disabling the bitmap
fonts. Check if there is a 70-yes-bitmaps.conf in your /etc/fonts/
folder (or is it /usr/local/etc/fonts/ under PC-BSD?). If it is not
there, symlink or copy the one from /etc/fonts/conf.avail/ folder.

Alternatively, put the following snippet into ~/.fonts.conf


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<!-- Accept bitmap fonts -->
     <patelt name="scalable"><bool>false</bool></patelt>
