I don't really know how the BSD systems works with ttf fonts but this is
one way to add ttf fonts to the list as I have done in Debian GNU/Linux

1. move the fonts to a dir mine is: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ 
2. run the command-line: ttmkfdir -o fonts.scale && mkfontdir . && xset
+fp `pwd` && xset fp rehash 

(this will make the truetype archive update the fonts and create the dir
for use in X) 

3. edit the things I need for the fonts to work in: /etc/X11/XftConfig 
(I have no real info about the XftConfig though) 

That is how I have done to create the dir with fonts. You may want to
take a look at the Freetype tool for GIMP because in this you can edit
the dirs yourself without problems, just go to Configure in the freetype
tool and tell the config where you have the fonts that is the
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ dir. 

This is all I know. But in your case I would check how the KDE installer
works with the fonts to install them.
