Archlinux with Xmonad/Gnome, I thought building --without-gconf might
help, but it didn't (although I didn't do a full rebuild so perhaps I
still have stale gconf stuff).

Nothing.

  resolution:    96x96 dots per inch

"Antialias: 1, Hinting: 1, RGBA: 1, LCDFilter: 0, Hintstyle: 3, DPI: 120.000000"

Setting the Xft.dpi resource does not change this DPI setting.

Okay, I changed the settings in Gnome's font rendering details panel and
now I get what I wanted

"Antialias: 1, Hinting: 1, RGBA: 1, LCDFilter: 0, Hintstyle: 1, DPI: 96.000000"

and the fonts look good again with the expected 'DejaVu Sans Mono-10'.

Thanks for the help.
