At the moment, the easiest way of changing it without going to a separate
theme is to pick out a font you like, and then make a file ~/.gtkrc with
the following in it:
  style "default"
    font = "-*-helvetica-medium-r-normal--10-*-*-*-*-*-*-*"

Of course, replace the font string with the right one for the font you 
want.  If all you want to do is make the font bigger, try replacing that
"10" above with a "12" or a "14, and see how you like it.

Another good idea.  One problem is not everyone is using the same window
manager, so an Enlightenment theme won't help someone using IceWM.  There
are some that are already done.  For example, there is a Metal theme for
GTK+, Enlightenment and IceWM (for those who actually like Swing Metal's
