Follow-up Comment #6, bug #40330 (project grub):

I've just uploaded a new version of the Unifont package, as well as separate
pre-built fonts, to ftp.gnu.org.

You can download the new PCF font at


and its signature file at


I ran grub-mkfont against the new PCF font, and it completed without any

The BDF font is also in that directory if you want to see what bdftopcf uses
as input.  The BDF version of the font now contains the XLFD entries below as
well as several more in addition to what was there.  After running bdftopcf, I
run fontforge on the resulting PCF font to set version and copyright
information; bdftopcf does not preserve that information.  You can see the
details in the source tarball.
