Subject:   Requesting input from users with nice fonts

I read the section of the handbook concerning X and fonts (section 5.5), 
but wanted some additional assistance from users with nice fonts 
(subjective, I guess), especially those using bitstream fonts.

I have a number of fonts on CD that I copied from a previous Linux 
machine I was using.  What is the easiest way to make these fonts 
available to applications in my FreeBSD installation?  In other words, 
in what directory(ies) should in place the fonts so that they are usable 
by applications in KDE, Gnome, XFce, etc.?   Do I then need to manually 
create FontPath entries in the XF86Config file?

Or if there's another way please let me know.
