I think this looks very much like the situation of n with macron which was
discussed on this list.
If those chars can be encoded with
U+0337 COMBINING SHORT SOLIDUS OVERLAY or
U+0338 COMBINING LONG SOLIDUS OVERLAY
then I guess the missing ones would not be encoded.

Subject: Letters missing for 19th century Latvian orthography?
> According to sources (1) and (2), Latvian used some letters
> with diagonal stroke in its 19th century orthography. These are
> G,g, K,k, L,l, N,n, R,r, S,s, long s.
> See attached scans from (1) p.231 (Faulmann-p231.png) and from (2),
> p.595 (Allen-p595.png).
> Of these, only L,l are encoded in Unicode 4.1 (unless I overlooked
