There's no xft XFree86 module, do you mean xtt? Anyway, that has nothing
to do with AA either.

Well, tell me if I'm wrong but what I say is based on that :

Xft is based on freetype, thus you must load the freetype module. Basically, edit your XF86Config (that can be called XF86Config-4 on some distributions such as RedHat or Mandrake) and make sure you have the following modules loaded in the Module section :
Example :
Section "Module"
Load "freetype"
Load "type1"
Load "xft"
Load "extmod"
Load "xie"
Load "pex5"
Load "glx"
Load "dri"
Load "GLcore"
Load "dbe"
Load "record"

Which is coming from here : http://www.xfce.org/Xft_and_Xfce_mini_Howto.html

Maybe in my case it was just adding Load "freetype" I don"t know.

It's *GDK_USE_XFT*. I have that in /etc/environment and it works, YMMV.

Hehe :)
I know ! it was a false keystroke ...

I do have
GDK_USE_XFT in /etc/environment and it does not work.
