This looks like a packaging error.  Yaakov, shouldn't installing
xorg-x11-fonts-* create /etc/X11/fontpath.d if it doesn't exist?  From

it appears that terminus-fonts is the only package that creates this

They do already, and they show up in the search.

I was referring to the fact that for terminus-fonts we see

    2015-09-10 19:57           0 etc/
    2015-09-10 19:57           0 etc/X11/
    2015-09-10 19:57           0 etc/X11/fontpath.d/
2015-09-10 19:57 0 etc/X11/fontpath.d/terminus:unscaled -> /usr/share/fonts/terminus

whereas for xorg-x11-fonts-dpi75 we see only

2015-09-10 20:44 0 etc/X11/fontpath.d/xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi:unscaled:pri=20 -> /usr/share/X11/fonts/75dpi

and similarly for the other xorg-x11-fonts-* packages.

I interpreted this as meaning that /etc/X11/fontpath.d wouldn't get created, but maybe I was wrong.

In any case, it apparently didn't get created for the OP, and I had the same experience. On the other hand, it gets created when I manually unpack the tarball, so I don't know what's going on.
