Disabling .pcf.Z font file support shouldn't be a significant issue; 
XFree86 has used .pcf.gz files for many years.

We can either stub-out the functions in decompress.c or delete their 
references in fontfile/fileio.c and remove the files completely.

I'll do the latter for the freedesktop distribution; I have a strong 
desire to make the released software from that source completely DFSG-free.
