Bug#165793: xbase-clients: /usr/X11R6/man/man1/xlsfonts.1x.gz doesn't explain "pattern" good enough

Package: xbase-clients
Version: 4.1.0-16
Severity: minor

The xlsfonts man page doesn't explain "pattern" good enough.
# xlsfonts -fn a
xlsfonts: pattern "a" unmatched
So it must not be a "grep" string, like I assumed. It must be another

Also the --help info should mention -fn in the latter part.
Also it should say -l will tie up your machine, like it does on the
man page.
