theres nothing like gmenu for SilverStripe. You could probably copy the typo3 plugin and adapt it to a SilverStripe module (depending on how the typo3 plugin works) or you could try and use sIFR which is another method of rendering fonts in a webbrowser - but its designed for headings rather then navigation options so I wouldnt recommend it

checkout jQuery sifr, it is nice and lightweight.
