Thanks Mike!

So, now I have to compile gtk#-apps like this:
mcs -r:/path/to/gtk-sharp.dll app.cs  or
mcs `pkg-config --libs gtk-sharp` app.cs


It works... however, the old way was more elegant, I think. 

Another possibility is to put the path to the gtk-sharp.dll in the 
environment variable $MONO-PATH ! :)
