possible font bug in 4.3
I was surfing some font webpages and I came across this snippet of text:
"Make sure you are not using the freetype version included in XFree86 4.3,
as it has bugs that significantly degrade most fonts, including Vera. if
you build XFree86 4.3 from source yourself, you may have installed this
broken version without intending it (as I did). Vera was verified with the
recently released Freetype 2.1.4. On many systems, 'ldd" can be used to see
which freetype shared library is actually being used."
Thought I'd share this possible heads-up..
