You have several option - hinting system has different settings for a good reason. But there is nothing lost, you have to use the http://www.infinality.net/fedora/linux/ directory where you'll find a repo rpm. This is what you have to install, and then add fontconfig-infinality with yum install fontconfig-infinality. That will result a change that's affects immediately. If you want the sharpest looking fonts ever, replace with droid-sans, and droid fonts where you think is necessary. This is unofficial hack... so be careful. PS. The infinality repo contains a modified Fontforge either, if you need it. HTH.
