Hmm, I can't seem to find them. ~geda is the M4 lib, is it?
So the part names should be in pcblib.contents. But a grep for C2012
yields nothing. The most probable line for 0805 is
	geda_0805:0805:0805:Standard SMT resistor, capacitor etc

Maybe my lib is outdated. I use the pcb package from debian testing
