I do not know of any... However, an idea would be to try to track the
version 2.x of xfce (www.xfce.org) which is a desktop environment
(like cde). Versions 1.x and 2.x where based on xforms (whence the
name) and I would expect that there is a lot of xforms code to take
from there (including a font chooser, maybe).

[Later] I have now tracked down a copy:

Unfortunately, there does not seem to be a font chooser in it. However
it may be worth looking if there some reusable widgets in the code
(the license is not GPL-compatible, but I would be surprised if the
author did not allow for a license change on such an old software).
