Not that your way should be broken, but the recommendation today
and possibly easier path is, for setting e.g. keyboard layout:

  setxkbmap -option grp:alt_shift_toggle us,il &
(From my ~/.xinitrc)

ms-ttf is a pkgsrc package (fonts/ms-ttf), and I reckon it'd
put it at a recognised path without needing to adjust configs.
