Some anti-aliassing problems in XFCE

Hi fellow FreeBSD users,

I'm a pretty satisfied FreeBSD user with a tiny question about antialiased
fonts in XFCE.
When I run some applications I get a very ugly font. I read some articles in
the FreeBSD handbook but some applications still look very ugly. For
instance GVIM, BlueFish, Mplayer look very ugly. But on the other hand Gaim,
Anjuta, The Gimp, Rhythmbox look very nice.

Does anyone knows what I'm missing here or do those applications not support
anti aliassing yet ?!
