unicode minus sign glyph missing with serif fonts in macosx backend

The system-installed fonts all should have the minus sign, though I
don't know for sure which fonts matplotlib is using.

You can find out with dtrace: start up python as usual but don't plot
anything yet, then in another terminal type "ps a" to find out the PID
of the process and trace it with dtruss:

sudo dtruss -p 29611 |& grep Fonts

Here 29611 is the PID. When you plot something, you should see the
process access some files, e.g.

open("/Library/Fonts/Times New Roman.ttf\0", 0x0, 0x0) = 12 0
