My curiosity got the better of me and I tried removing those two font
families.  Unfortunately, it had no effect upon the problem.  Same
aliasing on the same sites.

I'm sure this is a configuration problem, and not a lack-of-fonts
problem, as Xombrero renders cleanly without aliasing on other operating
systems with the same fonts.  I just need a hint as to where the knob is 
on Freebsd.

Thanks for your suggestions.
