Bug#340001: [patch] please enable the tyuetype font hinting

Package: xserver-xorg
Version: 6.8.2.dfsg.1-10

since the migration from xfree86 to x.org, truetype fonts rendered by X in legacy applications using Xaw,Xt or Gtk1 look like crap. could you please enable the truetype hinting so the non-antialiased fonts can look acceptable again?

attached patch solves the issue.
