At the end of my Xfree log I find this:
Code:

Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/, removing from list!
Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/truetype/, removing from list!

From my XF86Config:
Code:

Section "Files"
        RgbPath      "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
        ModulePath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules"
        FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
        FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/"
        FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/"
        FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/"
        FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/"
        FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"
        FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/"
        FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/truetype/"
EndSection

The TTF directory looks ok to me, but do I have to run some mysterious X font command to make it work? FWIW, here's what it looks like.
Code:

robt@caspian robt $ ls  /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/
encodings.dir  fonts.scale  luximr.ttf   luxirbi.ttf  luxisb.ttf   luxisri.ttf
fonts.cache-1  luximb.ttf   luximri.ttf  luxirr.ttf   luxisbi.ttf
fonts.dir      luximbi.ttf  luxirb.ttf   luxirri.ttf  luxisr.ttf

Any advice?

You may be missing this line in the Module section:
Code:

    Load        "freetype"
