GTK Theme Preferences is available in the Shimmer Project PPA for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin and 12.10 Quantal Quetzal. Add the PPA and install it using the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shimmerproject/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gtk-theme-config

The commands are for Linux system and I have a FreeBSD System . So my question is how can I istall on FreeBSD ?

Get the source for it (github.com/satya164/gtk-theme-config) , then compile under FreeBSD. I didn't try it, but I think it works. – Renan Apr 5 '13 at 3:13
Just modify ~/.gtkrc-2.0 ... – warl0ck Apr 5 '13 at 3:14

You should at least check if GhostBSD have not already solved this - they seem to work a lot on gnome+FreeBSD: http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=ghostbsd
