One of the fonts X.Org distributes is "Luxi Mono", aka luximr.ttf
from either:

One of our users complained that he couldn't get xterm to accept this
font with:  xterm -fa "LuxiMono-10" - it always chose the bold version
instead of the regular, since xterm specifies that it needs a monospaced
font, but fontconfig thinks only the bold font is monospaced and the
roman version is not.
