That means that you are not running x font server on 7100,
so fonts will be taken only from local directories

You can run X server without font server, 
just comment out the line in XF86Config-4 :

Section "Files"
        RgbPath         "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
#       FontPath        "unix/:7100"
	FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc"
	FontPath	"/usr/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"
	FontPath	"/usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"

If you really need xfs or really want it:
Install xfs e.g. in dselect
and then see man page of it to get it work 
You will only specify paths with fonts in /etc/xfs.conf or something
like that and also the port to run (e.g 7100)
