How to improve sub-pixel font rendering for Feisty (from Ubuntu Guide)

The fonts look way better out-of-the-box in Ubuntu 7.04 than they used to in previous versions (I wrote about this before - 1, 2), but they can still be improved.

This will dramatically improve the appearance of fonts with respect to the default Ubuntu install. The patched libraries are built against Freetype 2.3.x (not currently in feisty) and include David Turner's sub-pixel rendering patches.

In my opinion, the results are really impressive.
