Here’s what worked for me:

* install gnome-themes-standard into the system profile
* set GTK_DATA_PREFIX to “/run/current-system/profile”

The problem here is that GTK_DATA_PREFIX is not a list of directories in
which GTK+ should look for themes; it is just a single directory.  We
need to patch GTK+ to search through a list of directories instead.
