Ok, xf4 fonts were really ugly still until I did the following:

- installed 100dpi fonts (maybe not necessary)
- removed ISO8859 fonts (definately not necessary)
- edited /etc/X11/fs/config (the xfs config file) to contain:
catalogue = /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled,

- removed all the FontPaths except 1 from XF86Config-4:
        FontPath "unix/:7100"

Now everything is gorgeous.

I haven't looked into font issues (ever), but I speculate xfs renders
fonts more nicely than X's built-in rendering.
