I have tried removing all mention of that font and use whatever the defaut is. It looks slightly more faint and tin but that might be an illusion.

Thank you for all your help and comments. I willl experiment a little to see if i can find a fixed font that looks OK.

Looking around at what has changed I saw that --with-cairo was the
default, so I built with --without-cairo and that works as before.
Sorry not to be able to answer the quetsions; visual stuff is not by
forte and I am largely ignorant of what cairo is.

We want to migrate towards Cairo, so disabling it is not the best
solution.  By disabling it, you get an Xft build, which has known
problems with some modern fonts, and no good solutions (since Xft
doesn't seem to be actively maintained anymore).

Let me turn the table and ask you why you need that font? is something
wrong with the default font selected by the Cairo build?

Is thete a way of finding out wat fonr I am actually using?
