This is the same as 
http://library.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/2000/May/msg00182.html

however I never got the xset fp [blah] working and I mess with my X server 
a lot so I just put it /etc/X11/XF86Config as below [this assumes you are 
using X4.x, which using RH7.2 is ok] see "man XF86Config" for more.

Section "Files"
        RgbPath      "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
        ModulePath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules"
#these next two lines
        FontPath     "/usr/local/mathematica/SystemFiles/Fonts/X/"
        FontPath     "/usr/local/mathematica/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1/"

        FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
        FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/"
        FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/"
        FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/"
        FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/"
        FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"
        FontPath     "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType/"
EndSection

have fun,
