The font size (in pixels) is set from a combination of the DPI for
your screen (pango asks X for this information) and the point size of
the font (eg. if you've asked for "sans 12").

So you can either change the configuration of your X server to
decrease the DPI, or you can ask for a smaller point size. I'd check
the X server first and only if there's no problem there add something

  gtk-font-name = "Bitstream Vera Sans 8"

to .gtkrc-2.0 in my home directory.
