No it won't.
As Denis has said, unifont is installed by Chinese desktop task.
Although d-i uses jfbterm and unifont, they are not INSTALLED by default
for a sarge system. At least not on my sarge box installed with English
There is one thing to consider, though. Japanese environment (not the
desktop) task depends on jfbterm, and jfbterm depends on (unifont |
xfont-base). The Japanese desktop task doesn't depends on jfbterm or
unifont, however. So there is still good chances for a Japanese desktop
to have unifont installed, isn't there? (I must admit I've never tested
Japanese d-i, so this is just speculation.)
