[metapost] Using Metapost on Ubuntu 9.10

For some reason under Ubuntu 9.10 (x86 and x64), MetaPost refuses to render
any images that contain text. If you open the file for Image.1, it opens
evince and it hangs indefinitely. I can create images perfectly fine and
render this as long as there is no text. Am I missing any specific font
packages or something that I should be using? I know that it works under
Windows. I also know that on a different machine I had a while back (running
Ubuntu 8.04, I believe), I had it working then.

Am I missing anything? Has anyone else had this problem and knows how to fix
it?  I appreciate any and all available help.
