That's a common misconception about xfs.
Xfs doesn't serve font files, it serves pre-rendered font "bitmaps" that
are only used internally by the X server.
In a nutshell, if you're using modern apps with a modern font rendering
library (cairo, pango, libXft, Qt 4, etc), server-side font rendering -
and thus xfs - will never be used.
Please see this thread  in Gentoo's bugzilla for more info, I'm sure
your questions have all been asked there.
