To get identical output as on your laptop, you still need:

        <match target="font">
                <edit name="rgba" mode="assign"><const>rgb</const></edit>

I find it makes enough difference to bother.

Iff the font it a ttf (or ttf-style otf) and was engineered with high
quality intructions.  There are a lot of fonts out there that are
autohinted -- or not hinted at all -- where freetype's autohinter
out-performs whatever software the font designer user to autohint.

But for those fonts you can add <match> clauses in fonts.conf to
force the autohinter instead of the interpreter.
