Yes. You can tell your X font server where your bitmap fonts live by
adding the respective paths to your XF86Config file. The next time
the X server is started  the fonts should show up in Gimp's fonts

 Not sure if restarting is really necessary, maybe it's enough to
just `kill -HUP' the xfs process as root.
