Some further details for future reference:
* It appears that GTK apps are using Mac OS X's native ATSUI to draw
text. At least, using sampler on a GTK app shows pango calling in to
ATSUI. This would explain why configuring ~/.fonts.conf would do
nothing: it isn't using Xft to draw text!
* This bug appears to be related:
I have not tried rebuilding pango without ATSUI support, since I've
spent enough time on this and need to get some "real" work done.
