John, thank you for discovering the root cause of the problem.

I applied a fix to master.

I looked at this. The problem is in the tests themselves, and not the functionality that is under test.

The attached patch keeps Guix happy, but is not a "real" solution.

Andreas Enge reports:

[GNU PSPP 0.8.1] testsuite: 987 988 989 990 991 992 failed

The problem occurs with our
GNU Guix package of PSPP as soon as we drop the "--without-cairo" configure
flag (while keeping "--without-gui" for the time being).

The error message is always:
+render-test: The defined page is not long enough to hold at least 3 lines in the default font. In fact, there's only room for 2 lines.

The Guix build process happens in a sparsely populated chroot; the only
fonts available come from the gs-fonts package.
