I have FreeBSD 9.3R-p13 running on this desktop box, running XFCE & 
using rxvt shells as my CLI of choice. Everything is working well. 
Whenever I want to pkg upgrade, I drop out of XFCE back to the console. 
The font there is not ideal for the CLI work I do there. It appears to 
give about 80 chars/line & 25 lines on the screen. The fonts I use under 
rxvt give more like 50-55 lines per (maximized) screen. Where can I go 
to change that console font to something more to my liking ? TIA & have 
a good one.
