 Yes, with uxterm, I can see just box.
 But if I use gnome-terminal or xfce4-terminal, I can see all characters
 that includes macron over vowel. Could you try it?
 And "uxterm -fa 'Sazanami' -fs 12" or "uxterm -fa 'Kochi Gothic' -fs 12",
 you'll see same thing, just box with macron over vowel.

 I think it's not ttf-vlgothic's problem.
