Line height is usually not configurable in a terminal, and for characters in e.g. the "Box Drawing" & "Block Elements" ranges there is also the issue that they need to connect. That's probably why the different styles exist? (I didn't check if they actually do that.) I wonder if it would be better to build them on-demand, using debconf to select what variant(s) is/are wanted... But then you'd need all the dependencies to build them installed to use the font, of course. -- Jan Claeys
