IIRC xfree 4.3 doesn't need an external font server. I use ttf fonts without 
any external server; just edit XF86Config and fc-cache font dirs.
I think embedded server is the best choice, obviously IMHO :-)

so it isn't a xfrun problem :-)
mozilla forces us to see the universe from another slow perspective
(where t=0.1 * t :-) [i'm just kidding :-]
