 ah, you're right.  I was looking in /opt/X11 (XQuartz), not /opt/local...
 sorry.  xinit should set the fontpath correctly in:


 I suggest you do the following (rather than using a ~/.xinitrc):

 mkdir ~/.xinitrc.d

 cat > ~/.xinitrc.d/10-fontpath.sh <<EOF
 xset fp+
 xset fp+ /usr/X11/share/fonts/local/
 xset fp rehash

 cat > ~/.xinitrc.d/50-misc.sh <<EOF
 gkrellm &
 sunclock &
 /usr/local/bin/emacs-24.0.50 -geometry 100x55+696+145 -T 24.0.50 --debug-
 init &
 /sw/bin/emacs-22.3 -geometry 85x45+18+240 -T 22.3 &

 cat > ~/.xinitrc.d/99-blackbox.sh <<EOF
 [[ -x /sw/bin/blackbox ]] && exec /sw/bin/blackbox
