Known issues:

setfont.sh in consolefonts.uci needs work, although it does basically what it says it does.  The current version that I have at home now uses whiptail instead of a for-do loop and includes the beginnings of keymap support, but the mydsl will not be updated until I have a better understanding of how keymaps and unicode maps relate to console fonts.

soxmix in sox.uci has trouble combining mp3s. At this time i'm not sure if it's a bug in the program or if it's my fault.

Xtdesk icons are buggy in evilwm.  Again, I don't know the cause of this yet.

1.   I couldn't locate the sgi-fonts.  Looked in mydsl and ibiblio.

2.   Any true-type fonts anywhere?  Would really like mstt or bitstream for Firefox.

The SGI fonts package is in the "testing" directory of myDSL, as is everything posted in the "testing area" forum =o)

I have never done any truetype font packages for DSL because i don't think DSL supports them natively.  artwiz, sgi, lfp-fixed, and terminus are all collections of bitmap fonts, and the console fonts cannot be used in X (or at least i don't know how to use them in X).  Honestly I've never even tried to use truetype, opentype, or type1 fonts in DSL, so i have no idea what extra libs they require.  It could be that all you need is a little configuration tweaking, or maybe you need some additional stuff from XFree86 or Xorg.
