I have firefox3-3.0.5nb2 still, and I see the same thing already. I
think even since a couple of versions.

$ ldd /usr/pkg/lib/firefox3/firefox-bin|grep freetype
        -lfreetype.6 => /usr/pkg/lib/
        -lfreetype.9 => /usr/X11R6/lib/

In case it makes a difference, I have tried to enable subpixel rendering
on the pkgsrc freetype, but I have never seen any visible effect. Maybe
this *is* the effect...

PKG_OPTIONS.freetype2 += truetype subpixel

and in my /etc/fonts/local.conf:

  Enable sub-pixel rendering
                <edit name="rgba" mode="assign"><const>rgb</const></edit>
  none, rgb, bgr, vrgb, vbgr
  This also seems to be set by xfce-setting-show into the X resources.

  ! GTK2 settings:
  Xft.antialias:  1
  Xft.hinting:    1
  Xft.hintstyle:  hintfull
  Xft.rgba:       rgb

        <match target="font">
                <test qual="all" name="rgba">
                <edit name="rgba" mode="assign"><const>rgb</const></edit>
