Perhaps we're merely misunderstanding one another, but based on all of
my examination, xfstt, though perhaps based on xfs, does not seem to
be able to serve anything but ttf fonts.

The server that was referred to in the prior messages seems---based on
the blurb that was presented, at least---to combine the functions of
both xfs and xfstt, so you only end up running one font server, hence
my comment that it looks like it _replaces_ xfs, rather than
supplements it, as xfstt does.
