Yes, you can certainly do that, and I think it was mentioned in the FAQ.

My recollection was that at one time in the remote past it could be done this way on OpenBSD too, rather than using the wsfontload and wsconscfg programs. However, it's quite possible that my recollection on this detail is ... senile also.
