The terminus font besides its popularity has been poorly maintained for years in Arch.
Here is a better script to use.

a) This is my personal build script. Some things that should be checked.
The install script is copied and modified from ttf-dejavu. I am not sure its entirely correct.
It works for me.
b) You may want to enable additional mappings like eg:
"If you lack mappings for Windows-1252/1250/1251/1254/1253/1257, ISO8859-16,
IBM-437, KOI8-R, Bulgarian-MIK or Paratype-PT154/PT254, also run:

$ ./configure [--prefix=PREFIX | --acmdir=DIRECTORY]
$ make txt
# make install-acm"

Its all in the README file. Either way this should be a better starting point.
This task depends upon
