Ouch.  I didn't expect that PCF generator function in X11 is broken...  Thanks for the report, fixed now in git.

Tested using the artwiz fonts (e.g. smoothansi) and fontconfig.

Built and installed 2.5.4, ran fc-cache -sf. Artwiz PCF fonts do not show up in fc-list.

Bisection pointed to 0e2f5d518c60e2978f26400d110eff178fa7e3c3 "Fix Savannah bug #43547." as the first bad commit.

Reverted the above commit, built and installed, ran fc-cache -sf. Artwiz PCF fonts show up in fc-list.

Gzipping the fonts (.pcf -> .pcf.gz) works around the problem, too.
