I've just found out that

  # aptitude install fonts-droid

solves the issue for me.

Hence, it really seems that I was missing an appropriate fonts package
with good language coverage.
I am therefore closing the bug report against package fontconfig, since
this package was not buggy (although a little reply from its maintainer
would have saved me years of head-scratching...).

I hope this update of mine may help other people experiencing the same
issue, if any...
