The GRID_LAYOUT keyword to WIDGET_BASE will do 
this in a portable way:

   grid = WIDGET_BASE (base, COLUMN = 3, /GRID_LAYOUT)
   b1 = WIDGET_BUTTON (grid, VALUE = 'Button 1')
   b2 = WIDGET_BUTTON (grid, VALUE = 'Button 2, with more text')
   b3 = WIDGET_BUTTON (grid, VALUE = 'B')

All buttons will be as wide as the widest "natural width"
button.  The natural widths are derived from the button labels.
