Sorry, I thought it is possible to specify a fontset via customize (I
thought I have read that in a comment somewhere), but it seems that it
is not.

Allright, this is really hairy. Please try the following:

1. Customize the default face and /disable/ the "Font Family"
   check-box, then save and restart Emacs. If `custom-set-faces' does
   not specify a family, then Emacs should take the family from the
   fontset specified in .Xresources. (Provided that you had this
   already working.)

2. For all other faces it should be possible to specify a font family.

   (If you really need a different fontset (not simpy a different
   font) for certain faces, please tell. But I think you have to
   resort to Lisp in that case.)
