I hit problems there after doing it "by the book" as I thought, but a
little digging showed me the fonts in /etc/fonts/local.conf were not
being added to fonts/local.conf and I had to do it manually (Instal;ling
in the wrong order, I presume) I got sorted with this

[root at genius /etc/fonts]# cat local.conf

<fontconfig>
<dir>/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF</dir>
<dir>/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1</dir>
<dir>/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/freefont</dir>
<dir>/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic</dir>
<dir>/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc</dir>
</fontconfig>
