Thanks Wayne,

: 1. Xvnc -help surely does not list its options on AIX; fortunately the
strings command brings out all options:

-bs                    disable any backing store support
-c                     turns off key-click
c #                    key-click volume (0-100)

-co file               color database file
-core                  generate core dump on fatal error
-dpi int               screen resolution in dots per inch
-deferglyphs [none|all|16] defer loading of [no|all|16-bit] glyphs
-f #                   bell base (0-100)
-fc string             cursor font
-fn string             default font name
-fp string             default font path
-help                  prints message with these options
-I                     ignore all remaining arguments
-ld int                limit data space to N Kb
-lf int                limit number of open files to N
-ls int                limit stack space to N Kb
-logo                  enable logo in screen saver
nologo                 disable logo in screen saver
-nolisten string       don't listen on protocol
-p #                   screen-saver pattern duration (minutes)
-pn                    accept failure to listen on all ports
-nopn                  reject failure to listen on all ports
-r                     turns off auto-repeat
r                      turns on auto-repeat 
-s #                   screen-saver timeout (minutes)
-su                    disable any save under support
-t #                   mouse threshold (pixels)
-terminate             terminate at server reset
-to #                  connection time out
-tst                   disable testing extensions
ttyxx                  server started from init on /dev/ttyxx
v                      video blanking for screen-saver
-v                     screen-saver without video blanking
-wm                    WhenMapped default backing-store
-x string              loads named extension at init time 

: 2. will have a look at Michael's Witrant's autocutsel (now rel.0.2)

: 3. vncserver -dpi 100 indeed starts Xvnc with the -dpi 100 parameter, but
default chars (e.g. in window borders & mwm-menu) are still too large...

: 1. Xvnc -help does not list any options;

Strange.  It does for me.

: 2. cut&paste between the VNC environment & MS Windows applications
:    does not seem to work;

See http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/faq.html#q25

: 3. default resolution is 75x75dpi and seems to be fixed; this seems to be
:    the reason for the large default fonts used at startup;

Try the "-dpi 100" option, or whatever number is appropriate.
