Not really: Mono won't lauch Gtk# applications if it cannot find 
gtk-sharp.dll. So adjusting MONO_PATH from within the assembly won't 
help. But something that could help, would be a MONO_PATH equivalent in 
/etc/mono/config or /etc/mono/machine.config. Microsoft .NET uses this 

       <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
             <assemblyIdentity name="myAssembly"
                               culture="en-us" />
             <codeBase version=""

Maybe we can add something similiar to Mono?
