Nothing. But it seems to me that the applications I cited, grace, xglyph
and xdvi don't use fontconfig.

But in fedora there is no need for something along defoma to have the X
server using Type1 fonts.

I think that using something along defoma would be useful for packages
that don't use fontconfig and still have a way to use a list of fonts.
So it wouldn't be for X, gnome/kde/openoffice, but for other applications
that don't use fontconfig.

It may also happen that it would be better to port t1lib to use
fontconfig to find the font files.
