The fonts.conf is fine and near same as with local.conf. I think, the
local.conf will be there if you install x11-fonts/bitstream-vera.. However,
here's how to enable the sub-pixel rending add some lines following:
<edit name="rgba" mode="assign">
But, I don't know if it will help for the CRT monitor.. You can try to
check link http://www.xfree86.org/~dawes/4.3.0/fonts2.html#4 for disable AA
or whatever.. I don't know if it's really Xft/Fontconfig issue, your video
card or Nvidia driver, it's all I can help and someone might have the
better answer than mine.
