On Linux/X11 at least, embedded bitmaps should be used.
Check that the fontconfig property embeddedbitmap is not disabling
embedded bitmaps. On this platform, cairo also disables embedded
bitmaps if hinting is disabled and antialiasing is requested.
On all platforms, it may be worth experimenting with a TTF font
with embedded bitmaps but no outlines, assuming that is possible.
