I do not pretend to have the full answer to the question, but I see no
full answer yet on the list, and this may interest you.  The listed
Debian packages appear to deal in Type 1 fonts yet seem to have nothing
particularly to do with X.  Source: debram, ramification [1718 Fonts],
standing separately from [1823 X Fonts] for precisely the kind of issue
your question raises.  Further info
at [http://debtags.alioth.debian.org].
