    ... there is no `font' parameter in default-frame-alist ... 

That does not matter so long as the initialization file is called late.

The call

    emacs -q -l ~/.emacs-simple

fails because emacs/lisp/startup.el fails to process arguments on the
command line when they provided.

My ~/.emacs-simple invokes

    (setq initial-frame-alist
     '((font . "-Misc-Fixed-Medium-R-Normal--20-200-75-75-C-100-ISO8859-1")))

    xlsfonts -fn -Misc-Fixed-Medium-R-Normal--20-200-75-75-C-100-ISO8859-1
tells us

Today's GNU Emacs CVS, Fri, 2008 Jun 27  09:49 UTC
GNU Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.12.9)

(Incidently, lisp/startup.el says `process Emacs shell arguments' but
the only reference that I found in the Emacs manual for `Emacs shell'
was for an Emacs shell buffer.  However, the commentary for
lisp/startup.el says
  ;; This file parses the command line and gets Emacs running.
That sentence implies a non-Emacs shell that provides a command line.)
