No. It's currently hardcoded in scterm-teken.c. Alexander Churanov has
been working on making this dynamic.

With my new console driver there's no need to switch tables/fonts. I'm
currently typing this message using my console driver, which has 1390
unique glyphs (roughly 45% used by the normal characters, 45% by the
bold characters and 10% shared between them).
