Well, I just solved my own problem. I guess I should have waited a bit
before sending out this call for help. :)
For some reason, /etc/fonts/local.conf is not being read properly.
However, if I copy it to ~/.fonts.conf then it works just fine. I don't
know why local.conf isn't read since in /etc/fonts/fonts.conf it says
"Place any local customizations in local.conf which this file
references", then later includes the file. The permissions on fonts.conf
and local.conf are the same.
