/usr/X11? Never seen such a path. Moreover, /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/ is
deprecated from X.Org 7 onwards. FWIW, in Debian, the fonts are under
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/latex-xft-fonts/, which looks sensible to me.
If you really need files in /usr/lib or whatever directory for some old
non FHS-compliant app, you can always use symlinks.
