xset:  unknown option +dpms

I assume it needs more than the 5 coaxes to do dpms.
(It did appear to be working with the short cable that came
with the monitor.)

> Font for xterm: x11-fonts/inconsolata-ttf

I installed package inconsolata-ttf-20090215.tbz

caching, new cache contents: 24 fonts, 0 dirs
/var/db/fontconfig: cleaning cache directory
fc-cache: succeeded

xset fp+ /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/OTF
xset fp rehash
xterm -fn "-*-inconsolata-*-r-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*"
xterm: cannot load font -*-inconsolata-*-r-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

also xfontsel acts screwy if I select inconsolata.
The sample doesn't get updated, and it starts acting like
it needs backing store but doesn't have it.  If I then
select some other family, then xfontsel starts acting
normally again.

That was easy, thanks!
