Apparently back in the day SGI made some nice bitmapped fonts for terminal use. They’re now distributed by SGI under a new license.

There is a FreeBSD port which packages them up nicely. Here you can find a tarball of the resulting font subdirectory. Might work nicely if you unpack into ~/.fonts and run fc-cache. There is also a new TTF adaptation which possibly works on OS X.

(Of course, if you’re on FreeBSD just pkg install sgifonts!)
