That was the issue I was thinking off, but if you already solved that, I don't 
think there is a new one yet.

What Qt 5.9 does is setting the freetype property cff:no-stem-darkening to 0, 
where it normally defaults to 1. You can try adding "cff:no-stem-darkening=1" 
to FREETYPE_PROPERTIES, but I am no sure the environment variable will win. If 
that does nothing, you could debug the issue for me by instead adding "cff:no-
stem-darkening=0" to FREETYPE_PROPERTIES and see if that makes non-Qt 
application exhibit the same rendering issue.
