But that is because fonts in sawfish are not selectable through gnome.
It's a sawfish options. Check your theme file and just edit the font
I agree that neither sawfish2 nor gnome2 are finihed. However, sawfish2
is not even supported by the gnome team. They switched to metacity --
which I also hate.
