Have you checked out

Note that I compile gtk# with .NET 1.1, and not .NET 2.0 as it seems
you're doing.

If you look at [1], all you need to do is:
 * Overwrite the 2.4, 2.6 and 2.8 policy dlls and config files (located 
   in source/lib/gtk-sharp-2.0/*/policy.*)
 * Add the 2.10 policy files
   - Add the policy.2.10.* to source/lib/gtk-sharp-2.0/*/
   - Edit gtk-sharp-2.0-lib.wxs and create new entries for the 2.10
     policy files
 * Update primary copies of gtk-sharp dlls

Now, rebuild the gtk-sharp-2.0-lib module, and rebuild the runtime and
sdk installers.  Don't forget to bump the version number in
gtk-sharp-2.0-lib.wxs and in Runtime.wxs and SDK.wxs.

Please send the patch to the list when you're done, as I'm not sure who
from Medsphere will be maintaining these installers now that I've joined
Novell.  Pete, Cody?

Hope this helps,
