Hmm. Do you get any errors when trying to create a map image? You can
test this by using the shp2img commandline utility
(http://www.mapserver.org/utilities/shp2img.html). If MapServer can't
find the font you should get an error such as "TrueType Font error.
Could not find/open font".
If you don't get any errors I'm not sure what the issue is.
