Must be some strange bug on sparc64, do the XFree86 people know about
it? I've used it happily on a 400 MHz P-II.

Well much depends on the monitor. If you claim that the same fonts,
antialiased on both systems, are fine on windows and not on XFree86,
that's definitely a problem. But perhaps windows doesn't anti-alias
them. You can disable antialiasing in fonts.conf or $HOME/.fonts.conf
for, say, fonts below 12pt with something like
<test name="size" compare="less">
<edit name="antialias" mode="assign">
It can also be done by pointing/clicking via KDE's control panel (I
presume GNOME's too).
