The following is an ugly way to get the font xlfd.

#include <gdk/gdkprivate.h>

GdkFont* font = style->font;
GSList *list = ((GdkFontPrivate*)font)->names;
gchar *xlfd = (gchar*)list->data;

Since its a list, I suppose you might get more than one xlfd for a
given GdkFont, but in my test it was only a one element list.

If anyone else has a cleaner way, please post here. I need to do
this as well at some point.

Good Luck,
