The 35 standard PostScript fonts are mostly not really there, but 
exist only as aliases pointing to approximations. E.g. Times is only 
an alias for "Nimbus Roman No9 L". These aliases are defined in the
file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/fonts.scale.
Could it be that the fonts are really there but only the aliases
are missing?
