Note that only the bitmap faces Adobe donated to X11 are named "Adobe
Helvetica".  The type1 faces are just Helvetica.

One can confirm by looking at the (gratis) afm files Adobe published,
where HV______.afm says:

  FontName Helvetica
  FullName Helvetica
  FamilyName Helvetica

So this is a more common search:

  :; fc-match "Helvetica"
  n019003l.pfb: "Nimbus Sans L" "Regular"
