This problem is because of missing ec fonts. Those were probably removed because were considered as non-free by mistake. In fact even Free Software Foundation recognizes their license as free (see https://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#ecfonts ).

Therefore, the ec fonts should be included back to the texlive-core package.

Also see the post on mailinglist: https://lists.parabola.nu/pipermail/assist/2015-April/000446.html

Thank you for any help with that.

Redistribution of unchanged files is allowed provided that all files
listed in the file 00files.txt are distributed, including this file.

Where is that file in the archives listed in source of the PKGBUILD? (Upstream distributes them, maybe with documentation, but Arch doesn't.)

The license itself is ok, but the license of PL fonts on which EC is based is not. We need them to get relicensed and find if/that the author of EC had a permission to use them under the EC license.
