I have recompiled the package and extracted CyrAsia-Fixed16.psf.gz font.
I can confirm that adding these two lines is enough for missing letter
to appear in font.
While we are at it, I wonder where these glyphs are taken from?
Because in build log I see that № symbol is missing from the resulting font.
In log file it says
WARNING: U+2116: no glyph defined
Also I see that currency symbols of some countries are added,
so I would like to add Kazakh tenge as well, its code is
₸ - Unicode Character 'TENGE SIGN' (U+20B8)
