Are you sure you have AA? Look at some fonts with xmagnify, if they have
cartled edges, they're not AA. I recently discovered that if you build X
with -O3 optimization, KDE will have some problems using AA by default.

Strange, on my machine xfontsel doesn't list all the fonts. It lists
2451 types (X build with Type 1 and 100dpi fonts only) but doesn't list
my windows-fonts (*.ttf), which are of fndry -microsoft-*. KDE uses them
perfectly, however.
