Is there a tool for creating the .fnt files that syscons uses? They
appear to be uuencoded binary files but I can't find out any info on
the file format.

Cheers,

It's a raw bit-map font, this is from iso-8x14:

They're only uuencoded for easy storage in CVS. Vidcontrol can take
regular raw 8xN font bitmap files as well. I use an old DOS program
called Font Mania, and there are hundreds of VGA fonts available for
download at Simtel.
