Thomas Dickey> suspect that the problem may lie in a change to Xft.

I also wonder whether older versions of Xft/fontconfig exist where
something like “freemono,sazanami gothic”worked.

Currently I am using fontconfig 2.4.1 and Xft 2.1.12 (openSUSE 10.3

I also tried with fontconfig and Xft 2.1.6 on SuSE
Linux 9.3, the result was the same, it didn't work without my patch.

I can imagine that this might have worked with Xft 1 because Xft 1 had
automatic fallbacks to other fonts if a font didn't have all needed
glyphs. But Xft 1 is so long ago, I doubt that anybody still uses that
and I don't have a system with Xft 1 available for testing.
