My original question:

I found out that it's the openwindows server that can't deal with the
different fonts (not matter what font path I tried). My workaround was
to run "openwindows -server /path/to/mit/server/X" and then it worked
properly. I don't really need to display postscript (and I could use
ghostscript if I needed to).
