Hmm. Maybe not. I tried

iconv -f ISO-8859-1 -t UTF-8 /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/luximr.ttf >~/.mplayer/subfont.ttf

after moving ~/fonts and $PREFIX/share/mplayer/fonts out of the way,
and it gives:

New_Face failed. Maybe the font path is wrong.
Please supply the text font file (~/.mplayer/subfont.ttf).
subtitle font: load_sub_face failed.

Also with UTF-7 and UCS-4, and the OSD menu now doesn't come up. Is
there another way to produce a unicode font?
