Yes, it doesn't work exactly like
`custom-set-faces'. But if you use the help
(`C-h f set-face-attribute RET') you can
achieve the equivalent, and perhaps circumvent
your problem.

Also `modify-face' may be of use - it is a good
start. Again, use the help to learn
the interface!

Last, you can use ~/.Xresources to move a lot
of that stuff from the Emacs init files and
also from the invocation command-line
arguments. If you do that, you need this line

    xrdb ~/.Xresources

in the ~/.xinitrc file.

You can grep the web from "Xresources" and
"Emacs" for examples what it can look like.
