actually I think it's a little more involved.. or not.
the bindings alone will probably not do, you also have to activate them.
for an ordinary theme, you simply include in your .gtkrc-2.0 the line

gtk-theme-name = "Foobar"

maybe gtk-theme-name = "Emacs" will already work.

if not, you somehow have to attach the defined bindings to the 
appropriate widgets; you probably have to google around a bit, or look 
it up how it's done in other theme files, since the gtk developers 
haven't deemed it necessary to document the gtkrc syntax (...)
