I will say it again: GIMP-1.3 does _not_ make use of X11 to render
fonts. It thus doesn't make any sense to restart xfs since the font
server is not involved at all.

Adding the font directories to /etc/X11/XftConfig should do the
trick. Here's an example line:

 dir "/usr/local/share/fonts/TrueType"

Please note that you need scalable fonts, not necessarily TrueType,
but scalable.
