There's a patch to add libxft support to Emacs, but the last time I
tried it, it was still quite unpolished[*].

Here's the info I have:

   version:           address@hidden/emacs--xft--0

   archive-location:  http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~cmg/{archive}

The home page at http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~cmg/ also seems to work.

[*] Indeed, for me it barely worked at all, even with lots of fiddling.
    However from the author's screenshot I gather he had better luck,
    so I guess it probably depends on what fonts you have installed, etc.
