enabling BCI (byte-code interpreter) font in Fedora Core 3

Hey all,
It's the stupid Linux Newbie again! So I was browsing the web and looked at the site, and saw this screenshot:
According to some forums, this installation had byte-code interpretation turned ON. Now I'm running Fedora Core 3, and I'm a complete newbie, and the forums I looked up all gave complex instructions on RECOMPILING the freetype libraries to turn BCI on. This gives me the creeps... I'm too uncomfortable/paraniod/noobie to recompile rpms. Does anyone know of a utility that I double click and it patches my Fedora fonts to enable BCI?

Also, for those who think auto-hinter is better than BCI, I browsed a lot of forums and they all said that I should at least try BCI and see if I like it. So please don't suggest that 'auto-hinter is better than BCI.'
I want to give BCI a shot, and please help me with that.
