  I don't think that is possible, and it's unfortunate. It would be nice if 
  GNUstep had font replacement like GTK2 so that if an app calls for a glyph 
  which doesn't exist within the default font, the glyph will be automatically 
  substituted from another font.
  
  UI sizes in GNUstep are calculated (well, they should be) for the font Vera 
  Sans 12. However, this lacks a lot of glyphs, so people who use other scripts 
  must choose another font, and sometimes this font is too big or too small for 
  the UI.

  This is a Freetype problem, I believe. What version of Freetype are you using?
