What are you talking about?  I tried the first font on this page,

and it is a plain zip file!  You certainly can extract ZIP files on
your GNU/Linux box, right?

Even if they were self-extracting files there *are* Unix tools that
can handle them.  For example, there is the glorious `file' command
that tells you the exact type of the file; it usually can recognize
self-extracting files, telling you which program you have to use.
Additionally, you can always use `wine' to execute the EXE file.

BTW, FreeType displays this font just fine at 13px.
