@ondoho
Thank you for the comment, I've updated the PKGBUILD but I'm not using the XWindows so not sure if this is ok.
Please feel free to send me a patch if there is something wrong.
Thanks.

I don't understand why this isn't getting more upvotes...
the bdf-unifont from the repos is huge, and urxvt takes more than 1s to open a terminal with it. but with this package (pcf = portable compiled) it's back to near immediate, with all the glyphs.

but i had to run "mkfontdir" in /usr/share/fonts/misc to make it available.
maybe this could be added to the PKGBUILD?
also i'm not sure if /usr/share/fonts/misc is in the fontpath by default...

They're inside the tarball. Haven't you noticed?

where can I find those files:
fontconfig-avoid-eye-strain.conf
fontconfig-upper.conf
ttf.install

Yes, the AUR interface is somewhat confusing here. Also, now I've got a naming conflict with three other packagers (previously it was not a problem, as my package was named simply "unifont" in AUR). Not sure about the best way to deal with this either.

Uh, didn't realize this is a split package. bdf-unifont already is in [extra], the others aren't. Not sure about the best way to deal with this.

This already is in [extra].

Problem solved itself: the bitmap formats don't actually support astral characters.

Added another fontconfig file which merges the "Unifont Upper" and "Unifont Upper CSUR" subfamilies with "Unifont" and "Unifont CSUR" respectively. Although relevant to all formats, this fontconfig file gets installed with only the TTF. Not sure what would be the best way to package it.
