Default NetBSD: pretty fonts

I've finally gotten my NetBSD 4.0 laptop set up with a font situation that I am satisfied with -- I thought the solution would be worth sharing. This may be a no-brainer to some of you; but hopefully new NetBSD users will find it useful.

Installing Red Hat's Liberation fonts from pkgsrc has transformed my firefox web browsing from a hideous, semi-legible mess to a rather pleasant experience.

If you'd like to set this up as well, simply follow the steps here:

http://www.netbsd.org/docs/x/#anti_aliased

Except instead of using fonts/ms-ttf, of course, use fonts/liberation-ttf.

I've attached a preview screenshot with a cropped post excerpt from our favorite forum. (I wish I had taken a 'before' photo. It looked terrible.)
