I believe I had to reboot after installing GTK+, for it to recognize
that it was installed.  To work with mono you will want to add the *-
sharp.dll assemblies to the mono gac, something like this maybe:
gacutil /i gtk-sharp.dll /f /package gtk-sharp /gacdir $(prefix)/lib/

Once again I must stress that I did not test this with mono, only .NET
