Do you have a random windows machine to install it on, and see if it
works over there? I think in windows it's a simple matter of copying it
to the "fonts" directory (somewhere in c:\windows). I'm afraid that's
the best "test" I can come up with.

I think this might be the source of your woes. Add another line,
pointing to the directory containing your tt fonts.

Well, if this doesn't work then we'll have to work out another way for
you to get it to me.
But it's either a bad font (trying in windows will tell you that) or
your xft is misconfigured (and that edit will fix that). I think we're
making progress :-)
