I think I should withdraw this report.
This was not a issue with fonts-misaki package - but just happens to
occur only with this package.

Upstream Misaki TTF is provided in two forms:

  1. outline-based TTF
  2. embedded bitmap-based TTF

GD seems to work only with #1 type TTF, and fails with #2.
I got an error with fonts-misaki only, because all other installed
fonts were #1 type.

Since #2 type should give better result for certain usecase of Misaki,
I guess keeping fonts-misaki in #2 form is better.
