Thank you for your assistance. Shortly after posting this message, I
was able to successfully build using the assemblies from the full Mono
distribution. These work fine, but the assemblies from just the GTK#
distribution did not.

This is tangential to the original topic, but do you know if it's
possible to upgrade the version of Cairo used by an application? Mono
is shipping with 1.5.2 if I recall correctly, which is too old for my
purposes. Dropping in a newer libcairo-2.dll causes problems.
