The current Emacs character representation divides the whole character
space into ISO-2022-based charsets.  But charsets for Mac fonts is not
based on ISO-2022 (except ASCII and CJK), so mapping from Emacs
internal code is needed especially for European fonts so that one
Emacs charset corresponds to multiple Mac fonts.

"fontset-mac" is supposed to be such a fontset, and it is used by
default.
