Have you read the section 6.5.3 in the handbook?

no word "disable" found in that link =) – holms Oct 18 '12 at 13:46
well there is an example how to disable aliasing for some font sizes or some fonts. You should be able to adapt it to disable it for all fonts. If you need a text with "disable", the same examples can be found in the wikipedia article on fontconfig and the fontconfig documentation – arved Oct 19 '12 at 11:30
