Uh, what's that?  From the version numbers it looks like a kernel thing,

Description: X font server
 xfs is a daemon that listens on a network port and serves X fonts to X servers
 (and thus to X clients).  All X servers have the ability to serve locally
 installed fonts for themselves, but xfs makes it possible to offload that job
 from the X server, and/or have a central repository of fonts on a networked
 machine running xfs so that all the machines running X servers on a network do
 not require their own set of fonts.  xfs may also be invoked by users to, for
 instance, make available X fonts in user accounts that are not available to
 the X server or to an already running system xfs.

In my bizarre little corner of the world, xfs is one of my packages.
