under debian it(xfs-xtt) is configured with the port 7110
the port 7100 is for the xfs
but well you do what you want

well try remove the line
FontPath "unix/:7110" # local
and put the TrueType font path in the FontPath list
the problem is that I am not sure that X support ttf without the Xfs-xtt server
moreover How will the X server get a list of the fonts(fonts.dir file in each FontPath directory)?
mkfontdir doesn't support ttf !
so I think that you really need to have xfs-xtt running to support ttf
