What is the right way to install font from sources on OS X?

Fonts are not coded. What you are looking for is a way to use or convert BDF on Mac. – Gerry Aug 19 '12 at 8:05

You don’t want the "source" package from SourceForge, instead download the TrueType (TTF) fonts optimized for OS X from this website. No need to convert BDF files!
