The Slackware fonts are much thicker than the one on Arch. Would like
to know how I can configure the fonts on Arch to look similar to
Slackware. I have read Archwiki's Fontconfig entry and tried setting
various configurations in ~/.fonts.conf. BTW the issue appears only in
Emacs  and GVIM. Firefox, for example, renders fonts correctly.

P.S: I am using icewm as my window manager and xdm as my display manager.
