I can reproduce this.  If I build Emacs on Mac OS X 10.6 then ns-antialias-text 
has no effect - text is always anti-aliased (as John reports).  However, if I 
build Emacs on OS X 10.5 and then copy Emacs.app to my 10.6 machine, then 
setting ns-antialias-text to nil works as expected (i.e. it disables anti 

John, are you using 10.5 or 10.6?

I've also discovered that if I build Emacs as a 32 bit binary on 10.6 (the 
default is 64 bit on 10.6) with the following command then ns-antialias-text 
works.  The commands I used to build are:
LDFLAGS="-arch i386" CFLAGS="-g -O2 -arch i386 -march=core2" ../trunk/configure 
--build=i386-apple-darwin10.2.0 --with-ns && make -j2 && make install

I added some logging and built in 64 bit mode.  The output is interesting, it 
looks like the test ns_antialias_text == Qnil is returning false because 
ns_antialias_text is corrupt.  I'm not really sure what is happening though - I 
have next to no knowledge of Emacs internals.

Output from 64-bit Emacs (the following is repeated many times):
