Cool, looks like I will need to upgrade the fontconfig sooner. There's 
something flaw in Xft2/Fontconfig, thought. The flaw is black background and 
white font, it renders worst and suck. It's one of my most annony. I heard 
that Keith (author of Fontconfig) and X team are going to work on this issue 
(I think render issue).
