Well, as mentioned in POP I should have used something like:

enum { LABEL_PADDING = 4 };

instead. Actually the 4px are used to have 1px in top and bottom
of text and allow a 1px border surrounding a label in top and
bottom. Thus the value has been hardcoded and is already at the
most minimal value.

If you prefer small borders of frames, you have /def/border in
the filesystem. if fixed font consumes too much space on your
laptop, I recommend something like

echo -n '-*-fixed-*-*-*-*-8-*-*-*-*-*-*-*'|wmiir write /def/font

This is at least readable to some extend in 1400x1050 setups...
