If you will decide to go with fontconfig, just for the record, the 
relevant aliases AFAIK are "sans-serif:bold", "sans-serif", and 
"monospace:bold", i.e. for the current defaults "Arial Bold", "Arial" 
and "Courier Bold". There probably is another way to specify bold (or 
query bold capability) using fontconfig functions as well, but :bold 
seems to work for me.
