Yes, you are correct - when I zoom to 100%, the fonts are smooth - now I
am confused - why do the fonts look smooth in xpdf and bitty in gimp
when the characters are about the same size on the screen?

It's just an artefact produced by the zooming. Xpdf does not have this problem because it is rendering a vector-based document and can recalculate how it should be rendered when you zoom in or out. Gimp renders the document at a given scale, and does not re-render it at any time -- it's not a vector-based viewer but an pixel-based image editor.
