I'm getting a very similar error with most of our gempak scripts. Gempak 6.4.0 running on CentOS 6.2 (x86-64). The script is running on an Xvfb display. Below is the error message I get when running gdplot2, gpmap, etc:

  X Error of failed request:  BadName (named color or font does not exist)
     Major opcode of failed request:  45 (X_OpenFont)
     Serial number of failed request:  72

I've done a ton of searching and haven't found any resolution yet.
