With the new freetype2-2.7.1-1, the font is no longer available under the name "Terminus" but instead it is now called "xos4 Terminus". Therefore, the command "fc-match Terminus" does no longer yield the correct font (instead "fc-match 'xos4 Terminus'" yields the correct font.

I'm not sure whether this has to be fixed in the terminus-font or is an upstream bug in freetype2.

Additional info:
* freetype2-2.7.1-1
* fontconfig-2.12.1-4
* terminus-font-4.40-2

Steps to reproduce:
Update freetype2 package to version 2.7.1-1 (still working with freetype2-2.7-2) and try "fc-match terminus".

As a tempoary fix one could add some fontconfig configuration in order to make "Terminus" an alias for "xos4 Terminus".
This task depends upon
