There is no font bug here to fix, TeX Gyre Termes is not metric or glyph
name-compatible with Times, so fontconfig should offer it as a weak
Times replacement if such thing is possiple (i.e. in a way that will not
tell poppler to use it if Times is missing), otherwise it should not be
offered as Times replacement at all. The same is true for the rest of
TeX Gyre fonts.
