Great! Apparently Helvetica isn't available in pkgsrc due to licensing issues.

Hello fellow developers,

  I've been interested in using NetBSD as a desktop OS and to contribute
to it for a long time and EdgeBSD seems like a great for me to finally
get involved. Part of the whole desktop experience I want is having
nicely rendered fonts, especially in my web browser.

Here are the instructions on how to get it looking like in the attached
screenshot made on NetBSD current and xfce48 from pkgsrc-wip with
Firefox 26.  You'll need a copy of pkgsrc and that you have root access.
Pretty nice result :)
Good job!
