But all I get is:

No fonts match `Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-10'

GNU Emacs 22 is not prepared to use font names à la libfontconfig (Unicode Emacs 23.0.0 or 23.0.60 from CVS allows so).

xlsfonts -fn '-*-bitstream vera sans*' (or '-*-monospace*') can list what your system offers. Then use such a font name. The xfontsel application can also find you font names.

The X Logical Font Description (XLFD) conventions allow to substitute elements with the '*' wildcard character.
