I don't know understand why xorg.conf isn't the place. If there are no 
fonts for
some language they should be installed and corresponding lines placed 
into xorg.conf.
Some fonts may be defective. So they shouldn't be put there.
So xorg.conf has to do with the problem.

I specifically have an issue with the font calls "sans-serif" that FF 
uses to show Cyrillic texts.
It must have come from FontPath in XServer.
