their purpose briefly, cut-and-pasted:
 bg[state] = color
    Set color used for the background of most widgets.

 fg[state] = color
    Set color used for the foreground of most widgets.

 base[state] = color
    Set color used for the background of widgets displaying editable
    text. This color is used for the background of, among others,
    GtkText, GtkEntry, GtkList, and GtkClist.

 text[state] = color
    Set color used for foreground of widgets using base for the
    background color.

The foreground of the GC's is always used. dark/light GC's are used to
make bevels/shadows. black/white GC's are used for black and white. ;-)

Scroll down a bit in the RC file docs and it also lists what the
various states are used for.
