Adding "-dev /dev/fbs/afb0 defdepth 24" to
/usr/dt/config/Xservers solved the problem!

GTK didn't see 24 bit graphics before the change. Non-GTK
based apps worked fine with olvwm, though.

Just to be sure, I've recompiled/upgraded Xft, fontconfig,
pango, glib, gtk, but the result was the same (no text). So
it's definitely a "depth" related thing.

GTK fonts, but now when I can see the text, I also see the
distorted graphics :-) Checking sunsolve at the moment.
