OK, that looks good.

Provided that this is the config file that is used, you should then see, a bit further down,
something like 

DEBUG - FontInfo - Helvetica,normal,400: Replacing Helvetica (priority=0) by FreeSans (priority=0)

Do you see a reference like that? If yes, do you also see the "FreeSans" font being registered
a bit higher up? If not, that could mean either of:
- a different config is actually used at runtime
- the FreeSans font failed to load properly
- the FreeSans font is still not the one that Java AWT falls back on for Helvetica, so the
metrics still don't match

As for the latter, the key is that via the config you _can_ make FOP follow suit, but you
really need to make sure that it _is_ the FreeSans font that is used by Batik. 
Does that font have a narrower 'J' glyph than standard Helvetica? It doesn't seem so, from
what I can tell...
