Hi,

it is a long time ago that I used a SUN, but my X Window on
a Linux box has the font path in the X11 configuration ..
When the XWindow system starts it should include all the
fonts in this directories automatical.

Math5* hold the script alphabet, the Piecewise[] bracket and
some symbols for the planets, the navigation characters for the
presentation bar, some interational letters ...

Regards
  Jens
