"Download the Fonts

There are two known high quality free font resources:
ftp://ftp.gnu.org/savannah/files/freefont/ and
http://corefonts.sourceforge.net/. Copy the fonts (files with the .ttf
suffix) to the directory you've just created. "

The savannah site doesn't work.

I succeeded to download the package from:
http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/freetype/


One suggestion:
I think this step must be /before/
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/stable/x/installing.html
so, people (as in my case) doesn't get this error:
"   root at lfs:~# X -config /root/xorg.conf.new
_XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
_XSERVTransOpen: transport open failed for inet6/lfs:0
