Without diggin too deeply, I think it looks like something I've seen
when I have bitmap fonts enabled.

I usually disable those by going to /etc/fonts/conf.d and making a
symlink to ../conf.avail/70-no-bitmaps.conf.

Looking at the page in Firefox, I have nice, smooth edges to the fonts
on the left.  And I am only using the stock freetype from Fedora.
