The font files are:

$ dlocate -L freewrl | grep font

(minus the README file, of course)

Do you know which files from these packages could be used instead of the
ones included in freewrl?  I don't know *how* freewrl uses them, but I
saw that they are simply copied in the binary-arch target of
debian/rules - it should be straightforward to create symlinks.  One
would just have to know which targets to point to...
