x11FontDirectory() uses '/usr/sbin/chkfontpath' if available, to find system
I believe chkfontpath was developed to work with the old X server method
of font handling and is now obsolete, and gives unreliable results.
On my system (Fedora 4) chkfontpath lists subdirectories of
but fails to list
I propose deleting the use of chkfontpath, and simply using:
X11FontDirectories = [
Also, fontconfig (part of the newer font handling system than makes chkfontpath
obsolete) provides utilities to query fonts:
'fc-list' lists the available fonts,
'fc-cache -v' (as root) lists the font directories.
