The following in my .Xresources does almost what I want:
Emacs.pane.menubar.font: 9x15
Emacs.pane.menubar.foreground: black
Emacs.pane.menubar.background: white

Now all I need to figure out is how to make the scrollbar black and
white, and how to set the default font to 9x15.

Btw I think I discovered a bug in the manual. The emacs manual under
the section fonts X says that the default font is 9x15, but I think
that was changed to courier 12 some time ago. 9x15 is what was used in
emacs20.

The 3d effect cause minor problems. For example because I set the
menubar to black and white, I can't see if one of the checkboxes is
checked or not. But I guess I can live with that.
