I recently used the "How to setup anti-aliased fonts on NetBSD with XFree86 4" entry in the X Window System FAQ, and noticed it wasn't entirely aligned with what I encountered. I could supply my own suggested alterations, but thought I'd mention it here first.
There are two things:
(1) It says to install fonts/mkfontscale from pkgsrc, but this package is no longer available as it's now integrated with X (at least with 4.4.0, though it wasn't with 4.2.0).
(2) It references the path /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType as the location where the TrueType fonts will be found, but in my experience the path is actually /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF.
