That is not necessarily true. The -fa option is for TrueType fontnames:

       -fa pattern
               This option sets  the  pattern  for  fonts  selected  from  the
               FreeType  library if support for that library was compiled into
               xterm.  This corresponds to the faceName resource.  When a  CJK
               double-width  font  is  specified, you also need to turn on the
               cjkWidth resource.

$ ldd /usr/X11R6/bin/xterm
        -lfreetype.9 => /usr/X11R6/lib/
        -lfontconfig.1 => /usr/X11R6/lib/
