I took a look at the output of the X server in an earlier post and it
already uses xfs for the fonts. But you have to configure xfs so that it
looks in the right place for the fonts. Take a look at the 'catalogue'
line in /etc/X11/xfs/config. You have to set this to exactly the set of
font dirs that you have. Xfs is very unforgiving if you specify an
unexisting or empty directory (dumps core on my computer). I encountered
the same problem when I wanted to start using xfs for the fonts and found
that I had to remove the '100dpi' directory from the 'catalogue' line. It
now works fine for me.
