[ft] Another problem with X11 PCF fonts and 2.7.1, now with bisect

When upgrading from Freetype 2.7 to 2.7.1 my configuration of the Terminus
bitmap font broke. Turns out it is now available under a new name: "xos4

    $ fc-match "xos4 Terminus"
    ter-112n.pcf.gz: "xos4 Terminus" "Regular"
    $ fc-match "Terminus"
    DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"

This happens to me on two ArchLinux machines using the terminus-font package,
one of them with AMD Catalyst drivers and one of them with Intel. Downgrading
to freetype 2.7 or using that new identifier fixes my problem. I found the new
identifier using "fc-match -s".

I also did a bisect and the offending commit appears to be
3576487add2f0e9691e8c43f8b0cd8e61aebf14f. I manually verified the results by
checking out the previous and next commit as well.

Here's the output of the above commands with a good commit:

    $ fc-match "xos4 Terminus"
    DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"
    $ fc-match Terminus
    ter-112n.pcf.gz: "Terminus" "Regular"

I hope this helps, thanks for all the work you've done.
