then you indeed found a bug in bterm

Could test this : 

booting with "devfs=mount init=/bin/sh" options
you will get a shell and then 

bterm -f unifont.bgf

and maybe also

bterm -f unifont.bgf -l C.UTF-8

you should get an error message.

Jeff's images are newer because they are builded from daily cvs.
Images in installer-sparc/ are builded when a new version of
debian-installer (the debian package) is released.

I was thinking that your bug was coming from a old version of
libbog-dev on Jeff's system. But I was obviously wrong.

I hope you will find the error !
