No, it should not. I assume you did not change you system either? (System or
Xcode update etc...) Things that work sometimes are not easy to debug. Let's

Can you do the following:

a) delete fontconfig cache: open and type "rm -r
~/.cache/fontconfig/". Is Octave working now?

b) delete Octave settings: open and type "rm ~/.octave*" and
