This reminds me of an issue with NoMachine's NX Client.  I'm not sure if 
they still do so, but they used to offer separate font packages for 
download on the same page as their Windows client.  The note next to 
them said that you'd only need them for really old X applications that 
require client-side fonts; all modern applications would use server-side 
fonts and work fine without these extra packages.

Out of curiosity, how old is your application?  Maybe there is a way to 
make it work with server-side fonts?
