Ah, this is very wonderful, I didn't know this (obviously), but now
found, that an example is included. This allows many cool
customizations for Gtk-Snd users. And Snd  easily can look just like
my other Gtk-Applications for example using my standard theme with
this as single line in Snd.gtkrc: 

  # Just include whatever I use currently: 
  include "/home/fbar/.gtkrc-2.0"

I had already tried the font select dialog from there, which worked
but only allowed to change the fonts also mention in the docs, like
axix fonts and so on, not the menu font. But the gtkrc is the Right
Place(tm) to configure this anyway, as is Xdefaults for Motif.
