I've run BLFS 7.10 for several days and noticed less clear fonts than 
with 7.9.  I reinstalled from square one without success and don't see 
my error.

As a test, I reinstalled BLFS 7.10, but with BLFS 7.9 dejavu and 
fontconfig packages (dejavu-fonts-ttf-2.35 and fontconfig-2.11.1) and my 
fonts are fine.  So I have a workable solution, but my fix is a 
workaround.  I've kept my bad fonts 7.10 build.  How can I pinpoint the 

I should mention my BLFS 7.10 fonts weren't terrible, but definitely 
less clear.  And again, my only deviation from the BLFS 7.10 
documentation was using 7.9 dejavu and fontconfig packages. It appears 
the procedures to compile each are unchanged from 7.9.
