The only thing I can see that's different between the FC5 install that's 
working and this one that isn't is the stuff that is supposed to be 
disabled, selinux stuffs.  On the fc5 box, the /usr/share/fonts directory 
has an ls --scontext output of:

system_u:object_r:fonts_t name_of_subdir
for all subdirs with three of them having a final :s0 appended.

/usr/share/fonts oon this broken box, ls --scontext outputs:

system_u:object_r:fonts_t:s0     bitmap-fonts
system_u:object_r:fonts_t:s0     bitstream-vera
system_u:object_r:fonts_t:s0     default
system_u:object_r:fonts_t:s0     dejavu-lgc
system_u:object_r:fonts_t:s0     japanese
                                 msttcorefonts
system_u:object_r:fonts_t:s0     perl

And in the /root/.fonts, it shows:
root:object_r:user_home_t:s0     abogada_loco.ttf
root:object_r:user_home_t:s0     Alexei_CopperplateITC-Normal.ttf
root:object_r:user_home_t:s0     andalemo.ttf
root:object_r:user_home_t:s0     arialbd.ttf
root:object_r:user_home_t:s0     arialbi.ttf
root:object_r:user_home_t:s0     ariali.ttf
root:object_r:user_home_t:s0     arial.ttf
root:object_r:user_home_t:s0     ariblk.ttf

yadda yadda another 100 times.  But selinux is supposed to be disabled.

And I can make a file with touch in any of those directories fc-cache 
spits out as unpalatable.

I even tried another version of fc-cache from a different release, it 
works exactly the same.

I've stared at restorecon's limited manpage for about a hour now without 
the required context/syntax for anything becoming obvious enough to fix 
things to match what they should be.
