[TriLUG] Debian testing - font problems in X

I don't know when I started having this problem, but I'm having problems with 
fonts in X Window apps.  I noticed it at least a few months ago, but I just 
didn't have time to look into it then.  I use a lot of KDE apps, and they 
look fine, but all of the old apps written directly to Xlib look terrible.  

I'm running Debian testing.  I suspect (after magnifying the text with xmag) 
that fonts in programs like Xemacs are not anti-aliased.  

Any suggestions for how to start diagnosing, troubleshooting, and solving this 
type of issue?
