I'm using gtkglext-sharp with gtk-sharp2 and it works OK. I didn't
touch anything ATM, only the makefiles, basically you'll need to
change all the paths and tools name. I was planning to set up a repos
to work on that, but I've no time until next year. The hacked makefile
is attached in case you'd like to see what the changes are to get it
compiling, but it is not the right way to do so (it depends on the
paths that Debian mono packages use). I've heard that a good example
for native bindings are the GTKSpell# ones, they should use autotools,
etc... Also this page http://www.mono-project.com/GAPI was
enlightening to me.

I am also very interested in having a GTK# OpenGL widget, but the main
problem you'll face it is that GTK devels haven't decided yet about
that. Check bug http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=119189. So
it seems that a first step to have good OpenGL support in GTK is
pushing a Gtk widget upstream, then Mono could have the bindings
directly in gtk-sharp. If Mono and Gtk would support OGL out of the
box that would rock!

At least it seems that TAO binding are working great and maintained.
