thanks. I don't know much about fontconfig. I don't have 
/usr/pkg/etc/fontconfig/ (looks like firefox didn't need the pkgsrc
fontconfig), nor /etc/fonts/conf.d/70-no-bitmaps.conf.
I created a /etc/fonts/conf.d/70-no-bitmaps.conf with the entry you provided,
but this didn't change anything. Note that the problem is not
when displaying the page (it looks nice in firefox, and not that bad
in print preview), but only when printing. I don't know if or how it makes a
difference for fontconfig.
