Ryan pointed you in the correct direction.  Got to
xquarz.macosforge.net and download the latest (2.6.1) version for Snow
Leopard.  Installing it is very easy and allows you to still use
Apple's borked up X11 (I have not since I install XQuartz).  There are
many known issues with Apple's X11 (lack of xrender is on major
omission we may see fixed with Lion) and font rendering, as pointed
out by Ryan, is one of them.
