It's a matter of picking the right font. My XEmacs without Xft looks
quite nice even compared to the other anti-aliased applications.
I use Xft all the time, and have done so with both 21.4 and 21.5, but
use non-standard configure options:
$ ./configure \
--with-xft=emacs,menubars,tabs,gauges \ --with-gnome \
Yes, the current Gentoo xemacs ebuild (in our xemacs overlay) uses the
same --with-xft settings. Given the feedback on the list I think I'll
leave Xft as an option controlled by a USE flag.
