In your ~/.Xresources, just add one line:

-----------------------------|CODE|--------------------------------
Emacs.font:  -gnu-unifont-medium-r-normal--0-0-75-75-c-0-iso10646-1
-------------------------------------------------------------------

...substituting your preferred font. Then do `xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources' to
tell X about your new preference.
