I'm currently trying to get URxvt to use proggy clean. I have already emerge'd the proggy-fonts package. I do have the directories where the fonts are in my xorg.conf.
Here is my xorg.conf for refernce:
Code:

Section "Files"
   FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/"
   FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/proggy-clean/"
EndSection

The proggy fonts due show up in fc-list, but not xfontsel.

You need a valid fonts.dir file in each FontPath directory for the legacy X font mechanism to pick them up.

The director /usr/share/fonts/proggy-fonts/ contains a font.dir entry that looks like this:
Code:

edit: I've "moved" (copied more accurately) this onto the desktop section, which I apparantly missed. http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-953756.html
