You don't use xfstt for xfree4 you need to put this line
Load    "freetype"
in your module section of your XF86Config-4

Then you need to get some treutype fonts and put them in a directory.
I use /usr/share/fonts/truetype.  Then you need to apt-get fttools,
and run mkttfdir in that directory.  After that put the font path
in your XF86Config-4, too.  like so:
FontPath        "/usr/share/fonts/truetype"
