Yeah, FontForge is absolutely fantastic, rivals any commercial font editing applications. Btw, Krita is nice, evolving slowly, but it's nice.
There's also Gogh : http://www.goghproject.com/screens.html
come along just fine, very nice. And there's one application that most people don't know, VIPS (with NIP2 frontend)
http://www.vips.ecs.soton.ac.uk/index.php?title=VIPS
Then there's SK1, that already opens coreldraw files
http://sk1project.org/
and if you need patterns, i use a lot Ghost Diagrams, and Arabeske,
http://logarithmic.net/pfh/ghost-diagrams
http://www.wozzeck.net/arabeske/index.html
there's also Passepartout, another DTP app
http://www.stacken.kth.se/project/pptout/
and MyPaint

And you can also google for spot color pallettes for inkscape/gimp/scribus, they're available ;)
