Here's my .gtkrc-2.0

gtk-font-name="Bitstream Vera Sans 9"
I'm sure there are other options as well.
The font entry from gtk1 which used X-font-strings is no longer used.
Gtk2 uses the font_name composite entry instead.
eg: font_name = "Luxi Sans Bold Italic 9"
The format is that of a pango string, so you can refer to the pango
docs for details. There are three options you can specify, any of them
being optional: font-family, style, size.
