Attached patch fixes the "insanely big" text.

(file #23755)

In the nextstep port of emacs (e.g. on Mac OS X), font.el crashes with "font-default-size-for-device: Wrong type argument: arrayp, nil" when trying to display any page.  This is because 'ns is an unknown device type.

The attached patch makes this problem go away; however the text is insanely big. The proper solution is probably more involved.
