it is very hard to show that by a picture, it is very dependent of
particular, physical install - but maybe this photo will be sufficient: 
From the other hand, I changed my mind a little: Spleen family looks
ugly (it is a matter of personal taste, of course) and it is better
for NetBSD to provide concise font style for all available sizes.
BTW: I found commit that suggest that a Terminus font family
is double-licensed (BSD and OFL). Unfortunately source package
doesn't provide a separate license for BSD, and commits in Free
repo aren't concise about licensing[2, 4, 5] (whole package or
parts? for FreeBSD or all BSD's?).
Terminus itself offers many different sizes and looks really nice.
