[Bug 246573] “-fd” option doesn't work in xterm

From “man xterm”:

-fd pattern
This option sets the pattern for double-width fonts selected
from the FreeType library if support for that library was
piled into xterm. This corresponds to the faceNameDoublesize

But when I try this option:

mfabian@magellan:~$ xterm -fa "courier" -fd "sazanami gothic"&
[1] 23651
mfabian@magellan:~$ ps aux | grep xterm
mfabian 23651 1.4 0.4 62772 9824 pts/1 S 01:15 0:00 xterm -n
mfabian@magellan xterm -title mfabian@magellan xterm -fa courier -fd sazanami
mfabian@magellan:~$ grep fonts /proc/$(pidof xterm)/maps
2adfb7a16000-2adfb7a35000 r--p 00000000 03:01 1493358
2adfb7a35000-2adfb7a54000 r--p 00000000 03:01 1493360

I.e. the “Sazanami Gothic” font has not been opened. Of course Japanese
double-width characters
can not be displayed in xterm then.

The font is available on the system:

mfabian@magellan:~$ fc-list "sazanami gothic" family font file
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/sgothic.ttf: さざなみゴシック,Sazanami Gothic
さざなみゴシック,Sazanami Gothic

(The first one is only a symlink which is used as a workaroudn for bug #196191,
it has nothing to do with the problem reported here, the same problem occurs
for *all* double width fonts).
