they certainly appear to be ok... they are directly from the
xfree86-4.0-fonts.tar.bz2 file, and when I look at those files after
decompressing and untarring, they look fine

I tried downloading again from a different mirror, and re-installed,
but the same thing happens

are there binary/text mount issues that could be involved?  I tried
both with /, /usr/lib, and /usr/bin mounted in binmode and texmode, but
with the same results

I don't need to gunzip the individual font files, do I?

if you still think I need to rebuild them, how do I do that?  mkfontdir?
