The X core fonts are used to draw custom widgets on the graphs. Maybe
using xft as a build-time alternative would be acceptable upstream. I may
have a look at it at some point. In the mean time it defaults to fixed 
font which should always be available.

lesstif since 2003 or so and Motif more generally supports Xft. I don't knwow
exactly how integrated this is with fontconfig. When there is a need to do 
some low level stuff with fonts (for example getting the font dimensions), 
the calling appliaction should check whether this is a X Font, an X FontSet 
or an Xft font and act accordingly. So for Motif clients, there should always
be some handling of X core fonts in parallel with Xft fonts. And in most cases
the font style should not be known by the application since high level
Motif API should be used.

xbae uses some low level font handling in Draw.c/Create.c and XFT should
be supported here. There is a request:
I may have a look as time permits.
