Please back it out from both fonts and termcap. There is _no_ ACS graphics 
in the ISO 15 specs, check it by yourself. By such commit you confuse 
people to use non-portable characters in their documents.

If you want combined fonts, name them clearly as combined, something like
the same about termcap entry for combined fonts, name it to clearly 
indicating additional prefix.

And please never ever touch standards area, they are holy cow.
