Worked a mono GTK# treat, thanks.

I had unsuccessfully used the switch previously with:
mcs -pkg:gtk-sharp-2.0 helloworld.cs -r gtk-sharp.dll -r glib-sharp.dll

pffft...  :)

Interestingly, I found this reference switch to give the FQP, -lib:[]
mcs -lib:/usr/lib/mono/gtk-sharp-2.0/ helloworld.cs -r gtk-sharp.dll -r 

Excellent, thanks MK.

However, monodevelop is left in the lurch. It needs this path/pkg fix to 
fuctioin and compile without error. But, would this problem be relevant to 
my systems environment variables settings and such?
