X11 fonts are X server resources. The X server has to provide them. AFAIK, if
it doesn't, then having the fonts on the machine where the X client (the
application) is running won't have any effect.

Disregard this. This is outdated information; Mike explained it to me. These
days, modern toolkits like Qt do client-side font rendering, i.e. the fonts are
loaded from the machine the X client (the application) runs on.
