I had similar problem but wanted to control DPI setting.

What you want to do is get your fonts configured the way you want them
as an ordinary user, then arrange to copy the directory tree including the
file:

~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/font_rendering/%gconf.xml

over to the gdm user's home directory:

/var/lib/gdm/

Make sure you keep all the permissions the same and change the
owner from you to gdm where appropriate. There are a bunch
of those %gconf.xml files in each directory on the way down, you
may need to copy over all of them (not sure exactly how the
heck this all works).

This has the effect of applying the gnome font settings to the
gdm user.

See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=451562
where comment #2 pointed out this trick (but didn't quite get
the filenames right).
