I think both sets of directories should be added. If you have xpkgwedge then
every thing goes under ${LOCALBASE} but you don't want to lose all the fonts
inside ${X11BASE}.

I was toying with the following:

.if !empty(X11BASE:M${X11PREFIX})
CONFIGURE_ARGS+=       --with-add-fonts=${X11PREFIX}/lib/X11/fonts/TTF,${X11PREFIX}/lib/X11/fonts/Type1,${LOCALBASE}/share/fonts
CONFIGURE_ARGS+=       --with-add-fonts=${X11BASE}/lib/X11/fonts,${X11BASE}/lib/X11/fonts/TTF,${X11BASE}/lib/X11/fonts/Type1,${X11PREFIX}/lib/X11/fonts/TTF,${X11PREFIX}/lib/X11/fonts/Type1,${LOCALBASE}/share/fonts
