No... I haven't some copied some windows-fonts. I only installed the
base-packages suggested by BLFS.
I now had changed the permissions of the fonts to 644, re-run
mkfontscale, mkfontdir in every directory and then re-run fc-cache.
fc-cache did take more time than the last time, but firefox segfaults
further on.

I will now try to get the clue by reading the ml-archive from your
second mail.

Thank you
