I think you'll need to add it to your paths in /etc/X11/XF86Config or in
your server config ( i.e. /etc/X11/fs/config)
You may also need to run the 'mkfontdir /usr/share/doc/freefont/' so
that X can read the fonts.dir for that directory.

Could anybody help me out in just how you install a font under X?
well, what *i* did was
apt-get install xfonts-scalable
apt-get install freefont
then to figure out where to look for more info,
dpkg -L freefont
and so i browsed to
where i learned to try
xset fp+ /usr/X11/lib/fonts/freefont
...and i thought all would be lovely. sadly, my font menu didn't
change, even after restarting (and the stopping, cold, and
re-starting from scratch) the x window server.
so to answer your question, you can apt-get install some fonts;
getting them to work with your setup, ah -- there's the rub.
