yes to both.

What I haven't got are fonts.alias files.

On my i386 FBSD 7.0-stable I have:

% pwd
% find . -name "*alias"

but nothing on i386 8.0-current:

# pwd
# find . -name "*alias"

I believe the installation of X from ports was identical
on both 7.0-stable and 8.0-current.

Which program actually installs fonts.alias files?

I can probably copy these over, but I'd rather get to the
bottom of this.

many thanks
