	We evidently have our browsers configured differently 
	because I didn't find anything-fonts under View.  And all 
	I find under Settings -> "Configure Konqueror" -> "TT\nFonts"
	didn't seem to  apply... .

	Yes, this CLI command did work. It's the same as I used on my
	Ubuntu server. For FBSD I had to use another command to
	correctly build the truetype font files for X.  But works.

	Thanks for your help!

	I have a slew of Postscript files that I ported for use with the
	free version of the Enscript port, but these should work almost
	the same way.
