i just compiled Emacs following the instructions found here:

I expected anti-aliased fonts, but
  emacs --enable-font-backend --font "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-10"

yields a somewhat disappointing
  "No fonts match: Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-10"

I'm sure i'm missing something very obvious, maybe not directly
related to Emacs.  I'm running Emacs from within ratpoison - Ubuntu
edgy on a powerbook G4.

Any hint would be very welcome!

I do not know this version of emacs, but under the standard emacs, you can get a list of the fonts seen by emacs by evaluating the following expression:

(print (x-list-fonts "*") (current-buffer))

(to evaluate an expression, type it in a buffer, place the cursor right after it and Press C-x C-e)
