Neither do I.  Why do you want to make a system

That's not the point.  I don't understand why you
cannot write the information during configure.  You
already do this on windows, why not on Linux and

On windows the information *is* in the library.  Why
are Linux or MacOSX special?

Why is it easier to hard-code the windows name into
the library instead of writing @libgtk@ and let
autoconf do the rest?

The problem is currently that recent versions of
gtk-sharp cannot be used because the .config files are
missing in /usr/local/lib/mono/gtk-sharp2.  That's

If there are now other ways to load gtk-sharp, I could
arrange to change my software.  It's just that I don't
see a method which loads the most recent version of
the library, be it 0.6 or 1.x.
