Patch 0001-* is outdated because the code for low level drawing of text
was moved to another file.
See attached revised patch 1001-*.
The issue of the font change still stands.

Text rendered at half the requested thickness
Status in PCB: Printed Circuit Board CAD package:
When text is present in a pcb (such as in a silkscreen), the thickness
is half of that given in the SymbolLine of the Symbol block. I.e.
if the SymbolLine says the text lines are 12mils wide, the result will
be only 6 mils wide. This was done purposely in 2003 by DJ Delorie in
commit 66592387176ba2578dfc14023a6fe49226f3a3df. Do we really want to
be doing this? It doesn't really make sense to treat the text line
thicknesses differently than other thicknesses (such as those of
traces, say). If we want thinner text lines, we can specify those in
the symbols themselves. I'm including a patch that removes this factor
