The following text is taken from the help document for the epslatex
terminal of gnuplot:

 In standalone mode, the font size is taken from the given font size in the
 `set terminal` command. To be able to use a specified font size, a file
 "size<size>.clo" has to reside in the LaTeX search path.  By default,
 10pt, 11pt, and 12pt are supported.  If the package "extsizes" is
 installed, 8pt, 9pt, 14pt, 17pt, and 20pt are added.

I have test to add something like "set terminal epslatex 20" to the
gnuplot initialization file ".gnuplot", this does change the font size
for "-depslatexstandalone" when printing in octave. So I think this
can be easily added to print.m of octave.
