Add a FontPath that points to the "misc" font directory.

have properly configured the misc font path, as it will then
still be able to find "fixed" and "cursor".
I've done this and I've just hit my first bug, should we file these in
BZ starting with some kinda disclaimer that we did the above?
Anyways "display" from ImageMagick no longer works, which is kinda PITA,
since I'm trying to view some .rgb files and more modern tools try to
read them as wmf which they are not and unsurprisingly thus fail.
Doing a "xset fp+ /usr/share/X11/fonts/75dpi" unsurprisingly fixes the
issue. I believe quite a few of the other trouble reports sofar where
about helvetica too, maybe we should move helvetica to misc (ugly hack,
but still) ?
