XFree86 fails to see/render TrueType fonts


XFree86 fails to render TTF fonts on my computer.  This is true for the
bundled fonts/TTF/* as well as the Windows fonts.

There are two problems:

1. XFree86 does not appear to include the X11 fonts/TTF directory in the
font path by default.  This can be shown by removing the Luxi fonts in the
fonts/Type1 directory and rehashing.  The server should use the TTF versions
instead, but it does not see these fonts at all.  This can be fixed using
xset fp+, but surely the TTF font directory should be included in the path
by default?

2. After xset fp+ and rehash, the TrueType fonts are listed in e.g.
xfontsel.  However, they are not rendered (or are rendered blank)!  The same
is true for my custom-installed TrueType fonts.  They worked in XFree86 3.x,
however, using the same installation procedure.

Other fonts are fine, but all TrueType fonts are effectively invisible.

This is on a fresh installation of Cygwin DLL 1.5.5-1 running on Windows
2000 SP4, with XFree86-bin-4.3.0-6.
