I was wondering if anyone could explain this discrepancy in font appearance.

Here is how fonts appear on my desktop apps in gnome/metacity.

Here is how fonts appear by default in kde/kwin.

And here is how fonts appear in kde/kwin after I manually run the
gnome-font-properties app.

I've tried kde with and without xfs as well as xfstt.  In kde control
center, I've configured it to use the same exact fonts and font sizes
as gnome-font-properties.  I've also set the anti-aliasing options to
match up.

So basically I'd like to run kde with my fonts appearing like they do
in gnome.  Does anyone have advice?  Is there some gnome program I
could have kde automatically launch to get the results I want?

I'm running FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE-p11, xorg-6.9.0_5, kde-3.5.5, gnome2-2.16.2.
