Solved my own prob. I had some "bad" fonts that this process didn't like:

-create /usr/share/fonts/"true-type font dir" as root
-move ttf's there
-go to the new directory and run mkfontdir
-run ttmkfdir -o fonts.dir
-run /usr/sbin/chkfontpath -add /usr/share/fonts/"true-type font dir"
-run /etc/init.d/xfs restart

 Mozilla doesn't seem to like the xfs restart, so log out first. Hope 
this helps somebody....
