Additionally, you need to build it unicode; we won't support ansi mode 
for pgadmin any more.

Late at night... ok, so use systemFont.SetNativeFontInfo(fontName)

Look closer.

The porting work will be to get wx running correctly, pgadmin will be 
the smaller part. Font and sizing handling needed more than a year's 
work to be fixed for win32 and gtk until we finally had a working 2.5.3.

Don't blame gtk for not being preinstalled on Solaris 8 and 9, blame Sun.

IIRC, you're the first user to ask for Motif in the last two years of 
pgAdmin III development. I really wonder if it's worth the trouble. 
Installing gtk2 might take some time, but it's a good documented and 
safe way to get pgadmin running.
