Are you sure? In BL3, what happens when you ldd /usr/X11R6/bin/xset?

abiword just calls the script, which is supposed to set up those fonts.

So Xvesa -fp /fontpath should do what you want.

Yes, but I don't think that I will be able to tell you anything more than
what you already know. Sometime I will test the SW71 xset with Xvesa
and verify that there is a problem there.

Yes, unless an alternate method (as you suggest) will work.

Maybe. I will try to modify the fonts.* files and report back.
