The GNOME platform:

It should be noted that the bulk of the work lies not in 'creating' the
binding (particularly if you're using the Gtk# codegen) but in
maintaining it and auditing the API to make sure it's consistent.
There's already a certain amount of bit-rot in gtk-sharp's periphery
(though this is being addressed). As a rule of thumb, it's probably best
only to bind the more obscure libraries if you intend to make use of
them in a project of your own.
