Whoops, I forgot - it’s not in -RELEASE yet. You can download a copy of the HEX from, and build it yourself if you like.

I think I know where you’re going wrong with the terminus fonts. Try this way:

% vtfontcvt -w 16 -h 32 ter-u32n.bdf ter-u32b.bdf ter-u32.fnt

If this isn’t any better, let me know what the problem is, because I’m using that exact font quite happily.
