I have investigated again. Your concern is not the changed hinting
(in either the font or the freetype renderer), it's a new glyph
Liberation gained and which throws xterm (and more generally, libXft)
off. So I reported
... and after a wee while, more glyphs got fixed and now the result looks good.
Expect liberation-2.1.3 in Factory soon.

(I had just today noticed that I still have a lock on liberation-fonts - guess
I'll be able to remove that soon :D )
