What a curious point.  You want your program to display itself using a GNOME 
theme but you don't want to run any GNOME daemons to do it.  It is a bit like 
complaining that you cannot run a KDE program without the KDE libraries 

Actually, GTK+ is a little more accommodating than KDE, because you can set 
styles and fonts and the like by hand by amending or providing 
{gtkdir}/etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc to specify them.

But as someone else has pointed out, it is better to start 
{gnomedir}/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon in the start-up script for whatever 
environment you are running your GTK+ applications in (such as the startkde 
script), which will pick up all your GNOME settings, including fonts and 
styles.  You do not explain why you have a problem with that.
