That's the main reason I don't use slackware too. I need Japanese, Chinese, and Korean fonts, and I couldn't figure out how to get them to work in Slackware so I moved to Windows (just kidding).

This is how I did it . I replaced XOrg-8.1 with
XFree4.5 which has ALL THE ASIAN FONTS enabled by
default.

This may be the ONLY reason to XFree over XOrg but in my book it's important enough to make the switch.

I hope XOrg gets it together..

you guys are really some strange kind... You can install XFree on your own, but installing some freaking fonts is such an issue?

Here is the Chinese (Traditional) packages set from CLE (Chinese Linux Extension - from Taiwan)
