It may be related to freetype and/or fontconfig, but each time I try to
either print or print preview any html file, I get a blank page.

Could you tell me with which version of freetype and/or fontconfig it is
supposed to work? Or does it require some package I've missed?

    There shouldn't be a specific version required, unless gtk
    itself requires one. Code is the same, or at least used to
    be as that in gedit, does gedit have the same problem?

    Yes, indeed, gedit has the same problem.

    As a matter of fact, it seems that the default fonts here are indirectly the
    culprits. Switching all to Bitstream Vera family solves the problem.

    Sad that one has to enforce the fonts to ones that are not really attractive at
    least on the Mac.
