No

The following script does not seem to scale the font in the enhanced text:

set term x11 enhanced
set title "Big Title\n{/*0.5subtitle}"
plot sin(x)

Note that it works with postscript:

set term post enhanced
set output "foo.ps"
replot

I'm using gnuplot 4.6.0 on Ubuntu Linux.

    That probably means your x11 window is defaulting to a non-scaleable font.
    I attach a screenshot of the output on a correctly configured linux system.
    See "help set term x11 x11_fonts".
