That doesn't seem to be the case here. That font comes from font-misc-
misc-1.0.0.tar.bz2) which has nothing to do with fontconfig (and
doesn't install any fontconfig files). The only package installing
anything in fonts/conf.d is fontconfig, and we're using the defaults:
20-fix-globaladvance.conf 30-urw-aliases.conf 49-sansserif.conf 60-
latin.conf 69-unifont.conf README
20-unhint-small-vera.conf 40-nonlatin.conf 50-user.conf 65-
30-metric-aliases.conf 45-latin.conf 51-local.conf 65-

Well the garbled output occurs identically when using a completely
different X server (Xorg 1.6.x on fedora ppc versus XQuartz 1.4.x on
darwin x86), so it doesn't seem like a specific X-server driver issue
to me... perhaps it's a bug in cairo or freetype, but not in the X
server or its associated drivers.
But still... how is it that the Regular style is not being preferred?
