bdf2psf 1.21ubuntu2 (amd64 binary) in ubuntu hardy

 This is a command line converter that can be used in scripts to build
 automatically console fonts from BDF sources. The converter comes
 with a collection of font encodings that cover many of the world
 languages; notice that the font encoding (so called SFM) does not
 need to follow the actually used encoding (so called ACM). When the
 source font does not define a glyph for a symbol in the font encoding
 the glyph position in the console font is not wasted but used for
 another symbol.
 .
 When deciding about the position in the font for a particular glyph,
 the converter takes into account that in text video modes the video
 adapter copies the 8th column of the glyph matrix of symbols
 positioned in the pseudographic area to the 9th column. In order to
 create fonts for text video modes the width of the glyph matrix of
 the source BDF font should be 7, 8 or 9 pixels, otherwise the
 converter creates fonts suitable for framebuffer only.
