`lsd` requires a font patched with nerd fonts, and configuring ones terminal to use such font.

This setup works:
- Terminal with patched font
- `pacman -Rdd awesome-terminal-fonts`
- Running `lsd`

This setup does not:
- A non-patched font
- `pacman -S lsd awesome-terminal-fonts`
- Running lsd

(Icons rendered as squares with their Unicode symbols inside (eg: not-found-glyphs))

In other words: `lsd` won't work necessarily work because of the presence of awesome-terminal-fonts, and may work without it.

Upstream is also pretty clear in the instructions: they require a patched font. Again, having `awesome-terminal-fonts` does not contribute.

Can it be removed as a dependency, given that it's not? (neither as per upstream nor in practice)

Using lsd 0.16.0-1
This task depends upon
