In the first place the messages like "Missing glyph for char 0020" are not
the bugs unless you have an application that attempts to use a character
that is missing in the font. In that case you have to specify what exactly
the missing character is.

Some points:
1. bitmap font generation in Wine does depend on fontforge being installed,
and fontforge version should be recent enough to be able generate correct
Windows format bitmap fonts.
2. FreeType versions prior 2.1.9 have broken/incomplete support for Windows
format bitmap fonts, Wine disables bitmap font support if it detects an older
FreeType version.

I'm going to close this bug, if you have a real problem that is not caused
by the reasons listed above please open a new bug.
