For the benefit of any poor soul searching this list for a way to 
change the font on a label in Gtk# (Novell Win32 2.8.3):

Pango.FontDescription fd = Pango.FontDescription.FromString("Arial 
7"); // small font
Label l = new Label("Wiggity");

As with all things in Gtk#, not difficult, just inflexible and not 
documented anywhere. For the record:

Pango.FontDescription fd = new Pango.FontDescription();
fd.Family = "Arial";
fd.Size = 7.0;

Does NOT work.

At least now in a few days time Googling 'gtk font label -php' might. :-)
