This commentary is n ot in the style we (and you elsewhere in the
patch) use: you should say "Set up", not "Sets up".

> +#if GTK_CHECK_VERSION (3, 8, 0)
> +      gtk_container_add (GTK_CONTAINER (x->menubar_viewport),

Please break long lines into several shorter ones.

> +#if GTK_CHECK_VERSION(3, 16, 0)
> +  /* Always want the scrollable container for capable-enough GTK versions */
> +  menubar_scrollbox (f, 1);

Comments should be complete sentences, start with a capital letter,
and end in a period and 2 spaces.

This is not the correct way of using @itemize.  You should do this

  @code{always} - Scrollbar is present, menu bar scrolls when too wide.
  @code{automatic} - Scrollbar appears when menubar grows too wide.

etc.  (Actually, I'd suggest using "@table @code" here, not @itemize.)

Also, please use "--" for an en-dash, not a single "-".

Do you really need these explicit \n newlines?

Likewise here.

More generally, shouldn't this mode have "gtk" somewhere in the name?
Or, if we hope to implement it for other toolkits at some future date,
the doc string should not say "GTK menu bars", it should say "menu
bars" and then have a note that this currently has effect only with
GTK menus.

I think doc strings of these functions are too laconic for interactive
