It's not to do with gamma. This is probably due to your chosen font family
containing a Light and Medium weight, and NetSurf was choosing the Light one.
I've just checked in a change which should fix this (to the font library, so
won't appear in the history on the builds page).
It currently isn't possible to configure the weights. Weights are mapped from
font names to CSS weights (http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/fonts#font-boldness
300 Book, SemiLight
600 Demi, DemiBold, Semi, SemiBold
800 Extra, ExtraBold, Heavy
900 Black, ExtraBlack, UltraBlack, UltraBold
400 is the default weight. If a weight is missing, it takes the next lower
weight for 200 or 300, and next higher otherwise.
