Here is the new definition:

(defun set-frame-font (font-name &optional keep-size)
  "Set the font of the selected frame to FONT-NAME.
When called interactively, prompt for the name of the font to use.
To get the frame's current default font, use `frame-parameters'.

The default behavior is to keep the numbers of lines and columns in
the frame, thus may change its pixel size. If optional KEEP-SIZE is
non-nil (interactively, prefix argument) the current frame size (in
pixels) is kept by adjusting the numbers of the lines and columns."
   (let* ((completion-ignore-case t)
          (font (completing-read "Font name: "
                         (mapcar #'list
                                 ;; x-list-fonts will fail with an error
                                 ;; if this frame doesn't support fonts.
                                 (x-list-fonts "*" nil (selected-frame))))))
     (list font current-prefix-arg)))
  (let (fht fwd)
    (if keep-size
        (setq fht (* (frame-parameter nil 'height) (frame-char-height))
              fwd (* (frame-parameter nil 'width)  (frame-char-width))))
    (modify-frame-parameters (selected-frame)
                             (list (cons 'font font-name)))
    (if keep-size
         (list (cons 'height (round fht (frame-char-height)))
               (cons 'width (round fwd (frame-char-width)))))))
  (run-hooks 'after-setting-font-hook 'after-setting-font-hooks))
