Default What provides font 7x14-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz in Gentoo?

Specifically, -Misc-Fixed-Medium-R-Normal--14-130-75-75-C-70-ISO8859-1,
is loaded from that file. Here's what lead me to ask...

- I installed xfreecell on a fresh system

- I couldn't get it to start, it complained about not being able to open
a font, but didn't specify which one (thanks !NOT)

- I did some spelunking in the xfreecell tarball in distfiles. Right
near the top of the README file is a statement that says...
"Make sure there is a font named 7x14."

- "xlsfonts | grep 7x14" didn't find anything

- in Google, I found other occurences of the same error message as I got
and then asking how to get the "7x14" font

- there were several people reporting that font-misc-misc did the trick
for them. But it didn't work for me.

- file /usr/share/fonts/misc/fonts.alias showed that "7x14" was an alias
for -Misc-Fixed-Medium-R-Normal--14-130-75-75-C-70-ISO8859-1

- The font-misc-misc ebuild appears to install 7x14.pcf.gz, which
contains Misc-Fixed-Medium-R-Normal--14-130-75-75-C-70-ISO10646-1, a
unicode font

- Out of sheer desperation, I dug through *.pcf.gz files on another
machine, and copied over 7x14-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz, which finally got
xfreecell working.

I'd still like to know which ebuild I should've used, rather than
copying over a binary file.

I have that installed:

equery b /usr/share/fonts/misc/7x14-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz

gives:

media-fonts/font-misc-misc
