I believe that Ubuntu has patched some libs to tweak the font rendering.

In the Arch Linux i've found packages with patches from Ubuntu:

freetype2-ubuntu fontconfig-ubuntu libxft-ubuntu cairo-ubuntu

There is a way to convert the equivalent ubuntu packages to fedora or
compile the fedora libs with the ubuntu patches and generates a rpm package?
