display/fbterm: new spell, framebuffer terminal
Uses fontconfig and freetype2, and it's capable of displaying wide characters (double-byte) just as well as regular monospaced characters. Finally a multilingual capable terminal for the framebuffer (and still maintained).

+cat << EOF
+FbTerm is a fast terminal emulator for Linux that uses the frame buffer. It
+is mostly as fast as the Linux kernel's terminal when accelerated scrolling
+is enabled on the frame buffer device. It allows you to select fonts with
+fontconfig, auto-detect and convert text encoding with support for double
+width scripts like Chinese and Japanese etc, dynamically create and destroy
+up to 10 windows, record scroll-back history for every window, and copy/paste
+selected text between windows with mouse the when the gpm server is running.
