You have to tell xterm to use the font by setting some resource values.
One is the name of the font, which you may be able to find using fc-list
(that would be the "faceName" resource), and the other is the renderFont
resource, set that to true to tell xterm to use TTF's rather than bitmap
fonts by default.
