I just finished what you've recommend but I can't run fontforge:

$ fontforge
Copyright (c) 2000-2005 by George Williams.
  Executable based on sources from 19:08 9-Feb-2005.
Could not open screen.
You must start X11 before you can start fontforge
  X11 may be obtained from http://www.apple.com/macosx/x11/download/

I have a 10.3.8 OSX with X11 and Xcode developer tools installed.
I started X11 and afterwards terminal.

What else is missing?
