How to change awfull font in GTK apps?

I have problem that I think it's not so bad to ask for solution on this forum.
I have some GTK apps and I use lastest upgraded KDE and GTK libs. I have strange problem because in such GTK progs as XMMS(menu), or gtksee, gnutella, ripperx I have very small, hard to read FONT. It's in all GTK progs the same.

How to change this font?

I think those are all GTK 1.x apps still (and man does GTK 1.x suck), so you'll have to jack around with changing the GTK 1.x theme. This normally involves editing/replacing your ~/.gtkrc, but there's also an app called gtk-theme-switcher that'll do it.
