have you updated anything at all recently?

I can not be sure without more info, but my suspicion is you are missing
/opt/csw/etc/pango/pango.modules or the file contains the 64bit versions.

if you are running 1.24 you need to run
/opt/csw/bin/sparcv8/pango-querymodules >/opt/csw/etc/pango/pango.modules

for an earlier version you should run
/opt/csw/bin/pango-querymodules >/opt/csw/etc/pango/pango.modules

Please let us know if this does not fix the issue.
