Transcoding BDF fonts is not rocket science; if you want fontconfig to
know what codepoints are covered by a font, you'll just need to present it
with some way to get correct Unicode encoding tables for the font.
The problem here is not in fontconfig, but (maybe) Freetype which is
missing any kind of support for non-Unicode (or Latin-1) encodings for BDF
As BDF fonts have so many other troubles, it's not exactly encouraging
anyone to go try to fix this; I'm pushing to eliminate BDF/PCF fonts and
replace them with bitmap glyphs encoded in true type files (SFNT), which
seems better in all ways to me.
