[Fontconfig] How to get rid of bitmapped fonts?

Hi Keith,

I've done as you wrote but it doesn't work. I use CVS version of 
fontconfig that anounces itself as 2.2.90.

I put <selectfont>... at the beginning of fonts.conf, then to the 
end in vain.

Then I looked in the source code (I do not understand it fully) and 
method FcParseAcceptRejectFont doesn't seem to reject the filename 
of the font.

What am I doing wrong?
