Apparently the Apple Roman encoding was changed to substitute the Euro sign
instead of the currency sign.  That happened in Mac OS 8.5.  So, we can call
this a legacy-font bug I guess.   See:


In fact, fontconfig has code to prefer Unicode cmap over Apple Roman cmap if
the EURO SIGN is covered by the font.  That logic however is failing because
indeed the Unicode cmap doesn't cover Euro.

It may be time to simply remove the Apple Roman decoding from fontconfig.
