That was, indeed, the problem; thank you, Robert.  I managed to get 
GTK# compiled and installed, and with a bit of tweaking in the 
etc/mono/config file (changing target libraries from .so to .dylib) and 
setting the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH environmental variable, got the gtk hello 
world running on my Mac.  Very cool.  Thanks, again.
