Mkfontdir, it's a Xorg package so the name is xorg-mkfontdir, you can
use $SOURCE to get the basename and $XORG_MIRROR to download. Strip is
no more needed, Tazwok do it for us. Mkfondir is not executable after
make install so chmod (receipt attached) and depemds on

Send me a mail off-list with login:password

No need to recompile Xvesa, Xterm behavior can be configured via
~/.Xdefault. To add a new font, just put the TTF file in default path:


Optionnaly launch fc-cache, new font(s) should be available for X and
GTK apps.
