Did you do a minimal install?  Just wonder how you managed
to avoid the @fonts group.

since it is hard to maintain.

yum install @fonts should give you a reasonable
selection of fonts for your system.

Probably wouldn't be unreasonable to pull in dejavu,
*BUT* some users might want a different font and not
dejavu... so better to avoid that IMHO.
