Currently you have to build dlls on win32 to use them on win32.  That
should change in the next release.  We will be moving to win32 dllnames
in the DllImports, and using the mono .config entries which are already
in released mono to map from win32 to x11 sonames on linux, etc...

You can do this already if you use either one of the win32 Gtk#
distributions, or build Gtk# on win32 using the makefile.win32 build
