Definitely do NOT use GtkItemFactory (I assume that's what you meant, as
GtkIconFactory is for something else).  It's been deprecated for quite
some time.  Unfortunately, your menu code probably isn't going to be
that useful, because both the menus and toolbar in Thunar will be
(should be?) based on GtkAction/GtkUIManager.

By far the most valuable reference is the GTK API reference.  There's a
link to that on the left-hand side of the gtk.org website.  The tutorial
is useful as well, but it's incomplete and outdated in some areas.
Personally I think the tutorial is only really useful for learning GTK
basics for people with no familiarity with the toolkit at all.  I
haven't done so yet, but you might try googling around a bit to find
information on GtkAction/GtkUIManager.
