Well fc-scan shows that most of the bdf files declare themselves as "Fixed",
two of them think they are "Fangsong ti" and the others are not parsable by

So you need at minimum a

1. a foo-fixed-fonts subpackage, 
2. a foo-fangsong-ti-fonts subpackage, 
3. and get Behdad to look at the other files and tell you if it's a bug his
side or if the files need some form of fixing. Fontconfig won't be able to use
them if it can't read the font name inside. The readme says they are Lucida but
fontconfig does not read readmes. 

- it would be probably cleaner to package the ucs fonts in a ucs-fixed-fonts
package instead of hiding their origin in a collection package
- the licensing of Fangsong ti needs to be extracted from the fonts in a .txt
people can actually read.
