The /etc/fonts/conf.d/ which ships in Fedora Devel contains these gems :

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<!-- debian/unhinted.conf -->
<!--  Disable hinting -->
  <match target="font">
    <edit name="hinting" mode="assign"><bool>false</bool></edit>

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<!-- debian/autohint.conf -->
<!--  Use the Autohinter -->
  <match target="font">
    <edit name="autohint" mode="assign"><bool>true</bool></edit>

(to be fair debianists made this change originally and then it was
accepted upstream by fontconfig)

So the following probably makes sense ?

<match target="font">
        <test name="family"><string>DejaVu Sans</string></test>
        <edit name="hinting"><bool>true</bool></edit>
        <edit name="autohint"><bool>false</bool></edit>

Are all DejaVu fonts hinted ?
