Pango and a couple other packaes are needed for the new graphics 
rendering, and on many hosts those aren't installed by default, limiting 
the use of such features to dedicated servers, colos, and VPSes.

You can verify if the problem is an unmet dependency by shelling into 
the server and running the script from the command line - any unmet 
dependencies are usually output to the console:

./livecode-server  somescriptnane.irev
