I've been playing a little with Emacs from the unicode-2 branch.
However I cannot get it to render non-default-sized fonts with
antialiasing, for examples headlines in auctex show up like this: xft.png

Are you sure that your GNU Emacs 23 was configured and compiled to achieve font anti-aliasing? (Trying to report a bug you can retrieve some information on this.)

Is there some sort of "global font parameter" I have not found? I tried
set-default-font and set-fontset-font as suggest on but
nothing seems to help.

I think there is none, except: on the command line you need to add -- enable-font-backend. You also need to prepare your system with fontconfig. It uses (an) XML file(s) to mention all directories with fonts, name substitutes, define standards ... When I try to launch GNU Emacs 23 with activated font backend I get an error – I think it's really time for a bug report!

BTW, you don't need to write your LaTeX documents in UTF-8 using LaTeX's incomplete UTF-8 support. ISO 8859-9 would be sufficient:

%% -*- mode: LaTeX; coding: iso-8859-15; -*- either this header line or the Local Variables section at the end
           \immediate\write16{\jobname: Bonjour, PDF!}
% \DeclareGraphicsExtensions{.png,.gif,.tif,.jpeg} % what about .svg ?
        \else           % for non-pdfTeX
           \immediate\write16{¡Hola \jobname: DVI!}
        %   \DeclareGraphicsExtensions{.eps,.ps}
        %%% Local Variables:
        %%% mode: LaTeX
        %%% coding: iso-8859-15
        %%% TeX-master: t
        %%% TeX-command-default: "possible script"
        %%% End:

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
