The Solaris font server has supported TrueType fonts since Solaris 2.6,
but that doesn't matter, because the font server is only used for core
X protocol fonts, not fontcoonfig/Xft.

You may have a Xsun version with a buggy Render extension - try 
commenting out the section in /usr/openwin/server/etc/OWconfig that
loads the Render extension and restart your X server to see if that
