GTK apps fonts size too big in Debian

I just installed Debian onto my system with fluxbox as my window manager. Works great except with fonts being pretty big.

I noticed in particular that my GTK (like Gaim, Nautilus, etc) applications fonts are pretty large. I believe this is the default behaviour of my system but I don't know where or how to fix it. It has nothing to do with fluxbox's settings as I have done a lot of manual editing to those configuration files to no avail. This have me thinking that it has something to do with the xserver, and how xft fonts are served in it.

I'm wondering if anyone has experienced similiar issue here and know which or how I can fix this problem.
