You seem to have specified what you want correctly. I get something more
appropriate when I run fc-match with your parameter:

6x13-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz: "Fixed" "SemiCondensed"

I'd suspect that the system wide configuration includes some
no-bitmaped-fonts non-sens. You might want to look into /etc/fonts/conf.d
(or similar directory). There might be a file called 70-no-bitmaps.conf
or something, depending on your distribution.
