But the default is specified as a string (the name of the default font),
whereas in the code I only have access to mw->menu.font which is
an XFontStruct*.  How can I tell if this XFontStruct* corresponds to the
default or not?

You mean I could just use ".font" instead of ".fontSet", ... Hmm ... that's
an idea.  I'll have to change the rest of the code that uses
font->max_bounds.asent and things like that, tho.

BTW, is the HAVE_X_I18N test still necessary?  It'd help if we could just
assume that X_I18N is available.

How?  It seems to be helvetica in both cases.
