No, the basic widget layout is hard-coded in the program.

Alright, I will assume that this is a problem with the gtk
version, specifically that the way the widgets are packed
and/or set to minimum sizes prevents the entire window from
being resized down to fit on your display. I'll see about
reworking the gui layout code so that resizing is at least

In the meantime you could try the sdl gui and play with its
video options to see if you can make the game playable on
your display.

That's only really useful if you plan on handling bug reports
or submitting sizable contributions (and I do not have access
to grant you the priveleges anyway). Just use the bug report
email address or the guest account listed on bugs.freeciv.org.
