To amplify on that, the only linkage differences between emacs22-gtk and 
emacs-snapshot-gtk are:

       libbz2.so.1.0
       libcroco-0.6.so.3
       libdbus-1.so.3
       libgif.so.4
       libgio-2.0.so.0
       libgsf-1.so.114
       librsvg-2.so.2
       libxml2.so.2

Given that emacs-snapshot-gtk showed antialiased fonts back when it was 
tracking Emacs 22 CVS, I really wish they'd enable it once and for all (and 
especially since the functionality is already linked in!).
