just a warning...this will change RSN. portno 7100 conflicts with
xfs (x font server...in xbase package). I will be moving the default port for 
xfstt to 7101...it hasn't happend yet...but RSN it will

The latest version of xfstt is in slink (unstable). It works (I mean..
_I_ am using it :) ) It DOES have an init.d script...and the script works

This will also be fixed RSN (at the same time as the port 7100 thing)

fonts dir from /var/ttfonts to /usr/share/fonts/truetype
this is because /var/ttfonts violates both the fsstnd and the fhs very
