I think this is because the xserver now defaults to using builtin fonts.

This is nice since most people don't care about server-side fonts.
However, I think it means that you don't get to use them at all. So, I
think to fix this, you either need to build the server with
--disable-builtin-fonts or apply this patch:

http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpms/xorg-x11-server/devel/xserver-1.4.99-builtin-fonts.patch?view=markup

which gets you both builtin and loadable fonts. FWIW, the xserver in
master does this now more cleanly:
