I've been Googling for hours, and have rebuilt emacs 22 several times,
and I still can't seem to get a decent font working. I first tried the
Ubuntu packages for emacs 22, but when I failed to get a readable
font, I tried building from source as follows:

./configure --with-gtk --enable-font-backend --with-xft --with-
freetype --with-png --with-tiff --with-jpeg
sudo make install

The built-in font selection dialog (from Options | Set font) only has
a few fonts to choose from, so I've been trying to set them manually
as follows:

emacs -r -fn "-bitstream-bitstream vera sans mono-medium-r-*-*-*-100-*-

But the fonts look all jaggedy :(

I thought emacs 22 made an improvement by providing anti-aliased font
capabilities - is this true? If so, how does one enable it? Some
articles have stated that 22 doesn't provide this capability.
