Antialiasing is always on

Bug Description

Full antialiasing that minces all fonts into eye-straining blur is always on.
Evince apparently has no rendering controls of its own, whether config files or CLI - but then, isn't it reasonable to expect an application without its own preferences to obey the generic system settings? Yet fontconfig is ignored by Evince.
Version 3.8.3 (though it appears to apply to earlier versions too)
