      ======================================

      ... which implicitly means that ":set guifont=*" is not possible for
      Athena GUI. And "set guifont=*" does not work indeed with Athena
      GUI. It gives:

      E236: Font "*" is not fixed-width
      E596: Invalid font(s): guifont=*

      Motif is not listed either, but doing ":guifont=*" with Motif does
      bring a popup window to chose the font. So I think Motif should
      be listed in the help page:

      $ diff -c options.txt.orig options.txt
      *** options.txt.orig 2010-01-01 11:39:25.502514991 +0100
      --- options.txt 2010-01-01 11:39:31.377465863 +0100
      ***************
      *** 3250,3256 ****
      the case of X). The font names given should be "normal" fonts. Vim
      will try to find the related bold and italic fonts.
