Did this change some default values for freetype LCD subpixel filters?
Out of the box experience has regressed. After updating pkgsrc
(freetype2 was also updated) I get terrible color fringing, especially
visible with vera sans fonts in gtk apps.

I had to manually put this in my ~/.fonts.conf to fix rendering issues:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
  <match target="font">
    <edit name="lcdfilter" mode="assign">

Kind regards,
