I don't know. I do know that the nsITheme work that Brian is finishing (you can build this yourself now and it works quite well) does wonders for making Mozilla widgets pick up the GTK theme. The scrollbar in a gecko window is a Mozilla scrollbar so the Galeon folks could probably compile this new nsITheme code into their embedded gecko widget and then you would get "nearly native" look and feel for the scrollbar.

Note, I'm just guessing here. I have no idea whether or not this is a feasable option for embedded Gecko. I've been testing it on Mozilla and it's great.
