Your FreeType (the libfreetype6 package) might be too old. It seems 
you'll need version 2.3.5 in order to load FON files.

Of course not. The corefonts are all TTF files.

If you prefer, there are tools to convert FON files to X fonts if you 
want to (wine even comes with a fnt2bdf). But since X fonts can be a bit 
messy to handle, you shouldn't be afraid to fiddle a little if you 
decide to try that...
