The anti aliasing support is a bit tricky, because it required a special 
configuration of the xserver, and a xserver supporting this feature. 
Unfortunally I haven't found a stable way until now. 

A workaround may be to use the microsoft fonts. See the kde-cygwin mailing 
list, the faq pages and the xfree-cygwin mailing list for some hints.
