You can deploy your own gtkrc file and load the data from there:

string filename = "/the/path/to/my.gtkrc";

or my preferred method: you include the gtkrc file as a resource inside
your assembly:

using (Stream stream =
  using (TextReader reader = new StreamReader(stream))
    Gtk.Rc.ParseString (reader.ReadToEnd());

Hope this helps.
