That would add dep to SDL_ttf & freetype.

And on Linux you would need fontconfig to map characters
to correct glyphs.  No idea what one would need on OSX.

For it to be useful on Windows, it would need to have encoding
matching the file name encoding, otherwise you need something
to do the character -> glyph mapping.

Anyway, the problem is SDL GUI specific, which makes it
also somewhat Windows specific because:
* On Linux there's the python+gtk UI which doesn't have this
  issue, Gtk already uses standard (typically TTF) fonts in
  the system etc.
* I assume that OSX UI doesn't have the problem either.

Currently there's no Windows maintainer for Hatari.
