[arch-releng] does anyone ever use the font selection dialog in "km"?

Ok, umlauts are in the default font. But I knew there was an issue with
the default font. Admittedly it's not important for installation but
the default font has no Euro sign.

Because of this and because I need - of course not during the
installation - a font with cyrillic support, because I've got a few
files with cyrillic file names, I needed to search a font which
supports all of this at one time. And there are not so many of them.
Actually I found only two or three.

Probably because I'm used to these fonts I automatically change the
font in km, too.

For installation the default font should be sufficient at least for
people who are using only latin characters.
