Install xfs-xtt and configure it to serve the TT and freefonts
Works for me with Xfree 3 and 4

I've read that Xfree 4 can handle TT and freefont itself but
I've not tried it yet and I'm not sure if this just refers to the RENDER
extention or if the xtt part of xfs is now included in the Xfree 4

When you use Anti-Aliasing make sure that the path to the freefonts is listed
in /etc/X11/XftConfig.

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
