Adding "-dpi 285 -screen 480x640" to X_OPTIONS in /etc/init.d/nodm
leads to - well, rather huge fonts and icons and everything :)

I found (via google) a workaround for the font issue:

# cat .Xresources 
Xft.dpi:      96

xdpyinfo still reports the interesting DPI values after "xrandr --rotate
left/normal" but afterwards the fonts at least still look normal.
