If you want to try the current head revision, it might be closer to the kind of
output you expect.

If there are still spacing problems, can you raise a bug and put a sample file
and command line to recreate - I've got an idea how to improve the accuracy of
metrics we get from Freetype which might help, and a bug report will make sure
I remember to test the anti-alias case.

Thanks!
