 configure should avoid such old versions.  If that happens, use the

+* Extra fonts
+
+To take proper advantage of Emacs 21's mule-unicode charsets, you need
+a Unicode font.  For information on Unicode fonts for X, see
+<URL:http://czyborra.com/unifont/> and
+<URL:http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/%7Emgk25/ucs-fonts.html>.
+<URL:http://czyborra.com/charsets/> has basic fonts for Emacs's
+ISO-8859 charsets.
+
+XFree86 release 4 (from <URL:ftp://ftp.xfree86.org/> and mirrors)
+contains font support for most, if not all, of the charsets that Emacs
+supports.  The font files should be usable separately with older X
+releases.
