Unfortunately, now that there are multiple versions of X in the book,
the fonts could change locations.  However, they are consistently in
$X_PREFIX/lib/X11/fonts if people have followed the book.  The best I
can think to do is a note to change /usr/X11R6 to the prefix where you
installed X.

Scratch that.  I forgot about the commands I added in all the X pages
to symlink /usr/share/X11/fonts/X11-TTF ->
$X_PREFIX/lib/X11/fonts/TTF.  So, you could change the configuration

fontDir  /usr/share/fonts/X11-TTF

And now I see a typo on the Xorg-7 page.  Damn!
