put some lines like these in your $HOME/.gtkrc for gtk1
style "user-font"
  font="-bitstream-bitstream vera
and in $HOME/.gtkrc-2.0 for gtk2
style "user-font"
  font_name="Bitstream Charter 14"
I also recommend you have a look at gtk-theme-switch in ports, which
lets you adjust gtk-themes/fonts easily. The gtk2-version wasn't in
ports last time I checked, but you can easily compile it yourself.
