The vt(4) virtual terminal allows changing the current font via the
vidcontrol(1) utility. Some fonts can be found in "/usr/share/vt/fonts",
where these font files have the ".fnt" extension.

Is there an available description of this format?

Is there a collection of other fonts available? I am familiar with
vtfontcvt(1) utility that allows conversion from the BDF format. Is the
source code of the utility the only available description of the ".fnt"
