For gtk2 based software, I’ve had pretty good luck with a port called "gtk-chtheme”.

Here’s the current settings file I have:

$ cat .gtkrc-2.0
include "/opt/local/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"

style "user-font" {
	font_name = "Helvetica 12"

widget_class "*" style "user-font"

gtk-font-name="Helvetica 12”

For gtk3 based software, I don’t presently know of a gui based tool in MacPorts (probably there is one). I just edit the settings file manually.

Here’s my current one:

$ cat ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

# theme names Adwaita, HighContrast, HighContrastInverse, and Raleigh
# Fonts DejaVu Sans
gtk-enable-animations = 0
gtk-enable-tooltips = 0
gtk-icon-theme-name = Adwaita
gtk-theme-name = Adwaita
gtk-font-name = Sans 14

I don’t use the +quartz based variants so I don’t know how to set those up.

I hope this is helpful for you/
