Don't use -ETL-Fixed-Medium-R-Normal--24-170-100-100-C-120-ISO8859-7
either, it's broken too.  Only the greek fonts that are part of the
intlfonts collection are working correctly.

(On a SuSE system, this font is part of the xfntgreek package.  Most of
the fonts included here are actually wrongly encoded, we should really
consider removing them.)
