I just added TT fonts with xfs-xtt in XFree-4 so this should work
for you. Definitely use ttmkfdir to make fonts.scale then mkfontdir for
fonts.dir. I got a ttmkfdir tgz off the net, don't recall where.
But you also want to create a fonts.alias if you use Netscape,
otherwise you only get one font size in Netscape.It makes a big difference
and scales the fonts properly so Netscape looks very good.
I got a script mkfontalias.py from //home.c2i.net which does the
trick.That url has all the info you need to complete the job.Its definitely
worth all the trouble.
