Some fontconfig stuff makes fbterm scan fonts on first boot?  I compiled
fbterm myself for the config.minimal image with only unifont font
package.  This version was quicker and also the font looked nicer, IMO
(see the emacs chinese input screenshots).

I noticed that the foreground terminals Ctr+Alt+F2 etc now properly
support color (so what's the problem with aewan?)  AFAIR the previous
(november) image did not have color on the linux consoles, so that's a
great plus for me.  

We lost however the first console Ctrl+Alt+F1, due to how gmenu2x is
started.  I'd like to have that one back!

Emacs got in there, albeit a very early version of the package that has
some bugs already fixed in the git repo.
