VNC Font Mapping Problem

We're having a problem with font mapping with VNC Server on HP-UX 11.0.
We're using the HP-UX 10.20 VNC binaries of course because it doesn't
seem to be possible to compile the source against HP 11.0 (looks like
the imake templates are not compatible?) and the solution in the mailing
lists is to use the binaries for 10.20 on the VNC website.

The problem is mapping Arial 10 bold (Windows dev environment) to VNC
fonts. The font appears much enlarged and is truncated on our screens.
Can anyone help with this? How and where would the arial font be mapped
in VNC? Is there any way of making amendments to font mapping without
having to compile the source against our HP-UX 11.0 O/S?

If we set $DISPLAY to an X Windows Server session the fonts appear OK,
so this is specific to VNC.
