	I've looked in the wiki, but I cannot find what FONT_MAP is for.
This wiki page seems to confuse it with the keymap:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fonts#Console_fonts since it
says "Now, set the proper keymap, [...]: FONT_MAP=...". However, I
thought the keymap was configured with "KEYMAP=...".

	My system appears to work with:

	I can't type accented characters in the console (neither the text
consoles F1-F6, nor the X terminals like urxvt or konsole) but those
characters are displayed fine when I cat a UTF-8 file. Not a big
issue, just curious.

	So what is FONT_MAP for?
