There has never been a fonts.scale and fonts.dir file on my old machine
regarding true type fonts.  Also, putting the following into fonts.scale
and running `mkfontdir` did not produce a meaningfull fonts.dir file:

arial.ttf -ttf-arial-medium-r-normal-tt-18-240-75-75-p-123-iso8859-1

Still no luck.
