See set-standard-properties, in CLX/manager.l.  This corresponds directly to the
equivalent Xlib function.  Sounds like you will want to set
:user-specified-position to true.

This function is mentioned tersely in doc.l but, alas, not at all in doc/CLX/*
manual. This was chiefly for lack of time. But also I think there may still exist
some unresolved issues on how best to support ICCCM in CLX.
