XFree86 and antialiasing

I'm trying to activate subpixel antialiasing on my FreeBSD workstation.  In
my /usr/X11R6/etc/fonts/local.conf, I have:

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
            <!-- Activate subpixel antialiasing -->
            <match target="font">
                    <edit name="rgba" mode="assign">

These seems to work for large fonts, but not smaller ones.  For example, if
I use xmag to zoom in on parts of Mozilla, I can see that large characters
such as in <h1 /> tags are subpixel antialiased, but regular text is not.
How can I tell fontconfig to lower the threshold for deciding whether or not
to antialias my fonts?
