Does anyone know how to start the X Font Server manually (i.e. command-line)?

Redhat and fedora: /sbin/service xfs start

Most other Linux/unix systems (also works for the above):

/etc/init.d/xfs start

The /etc/init.d directory is where the master scripts for servers and other daemonic things live, and there's a system of little tricks that play upon them (the rc.x directories used by runlevel startups).

/etc/init.d/xfs status will tell whehter it thinks xfs is running (sometimes "no answer" means yes else a message). However if you have out-of-sync pid and/or lockfiles it may be incorrect.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
