Libreoffice does not use correct font for application menus.

What's the correct one?

I just upgraded to editors/libreoffice (libreoffice-5.3.7_5 -> libreoffice-6.0.2). My freebsd version is:

FreeBSD BSD_12 12.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT #15 r331021: Thu Mar 15 16:30:40 EDT 2018
root@BSD_12:/usr/obj/usr/src/amd64.amd64/sys/MYKERNEL? amd64 1200060

I use MATE desktop: under the menu System -> Preferences -> Look and Feel -> Appearance -> Font tab, I use a font called "Terminal Regular" for all my fonts. All applications use that font for menus and all font displays in the application.

For some reason Libreoffice DOES NOT use the Terminal font in its menus. I do not kown what the font it uses is called. Also in the dropdown box of available fonts Terminal font is not available. Why is that?

Thank you in advance for looking at this.

Just want to make sure, is this issue existing on both LO 5 and 6, right?
