Make GTK+ apps (and Gnome) fully respect your .fonts.conf

Since this has bothered me for a long time, as I imagine it would 
anybody who likes to uber-tweak their .fonts.conf, I figured I would put 
it out there.  Gnome and GTK+ apps never respected my per-font hinting 
settings in .fonts.conf which drove me totally bonkers.  Apparently, 
what causes them to ignore the hinting settings is actually due to cairo 
overriding it.  I found a solution on Ubuntu forums and created a patch 
for Cairo that will make it respect .fonts.conf:
