scalable=False, eh?  Well, I _thought_ that effectively meant
no antialiasing in fontconfig/xft land*.  The puzzle would
be where the helvetica-like font that is antialiased is coming from,
then :-).

[Not sure, but may need to run fc-cache -fv  both as root and as
yourself, there may be a global /var/cache/fontconfig dir]

fc-list :scalable=False file family scalable

should return all non-scalable fonts fontconfig is seeing on your system.

* in principle one can, given a big 1-bit bitmap font, extrapolate
smoothed values, some amiga-era stuff used to do that IIRC, but I don't
*think* xft does that.
