BTW: Anti-Aliasing

I was wondering why I was unable to produce Linux builds with anti-aliasing enabled, so I made a little investigation. The result: Using cairo-gtk2 as default toolkit seems to disable anti-aliasing. I'm not sure whether that has always been the case since I have not been building on Linux until recently. So for now, if you want to have anti-aliasing on Linux, use

ac_add_options --enable-default-toolkit=gtk2
ac_add_options --disable-freetype2
ac_add_options --enable-xft

Edit (2006-12-15): Building SVG requires Cairo now. Still no idea how to get AA working with cairo-gtk2. Maybe someone replies to my MozillaZine Forum posting.
