I'll let you maintain the patch.

Editing this comment, please ignore the font change in help.c. I managed to get the fonts working on the Steam Deck. I had to install the xorg-fonts-100dpi, but then after it copy /usr/share/fonts/100dpi to ~/.local/share/fonts , go into the local font dir and do mkfontdir, and then do "xset +fp ~/.local/share/fonts/100dpi". After rebooting the fonts finally showed up for X.

Again, most arch installs will work fine, but the Steam Deck is stripped down.

Wanting to get this running on the Steam Deck even after the patch it needed a couple of tweaks to get it running. First, even after installing xorg-fonts-100dpi, still couldn't find the fonts needed, so in lib/help.c changed both of the XLoadQueryFont lines to use font "-misc-fixed-medium-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*"

Additionally I had a problem where Freecell and Merlin wouldn't work. Both would fail on startup with a BadMatch. I've seen this issue listed on other Arch forums.

The fix I have is "good enough". It fixes the BadMatch and I don't see any graphical issues, but I didn't continue more up in the code path to figure out why the bad values are coming in. Anyway the fix is:

Adopted and fixed :)

It looks like the generated Makefile is broken. Please someone of you report this to upstream.
