I imported a number of freefonts and make a habit of setting the $font variable to /mnt/font/whatever/..., specially for acme. It's a step I have yet to regret, despite the inaccuracy with which plagues both fontsrv and ttf2subf (they truncate descenders). Not orthodox, not adequate for preparing documents with frequent font changes in acme, but preferable to creating an endless range of fonts in different sizes. Details on request, but nothing particularly complicated. It helps if one is familiar with P9P. Lucio. PS: I found the release of fontsrv on "contrib", yk/lab/fontsrv/. It contains its own version of freetype and, as far as I recall, it compiles out of the box. It does require a configuration list of font archives in /sys/lib/fontsrv.map. Please keep me posted with any improvement. And, YK, thank you for that gem!
