I'm on Mac OS X 10.4 where I'm trying to get a basic GTK# program
going. I'm working off of

Here I go:
$  mcs -pkg:gtk-sharp-2.0 hello.cs
Package gtk-sharp-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk-sharp-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk-sharp-2.0' found
error CS8027: Error running pkg-config. Check the above output.

The beginner's guide directs me to "Downloads" at:

There I'm told that the Mono package "Includes Mono, Cocoa#, Gtk#,
MonoDevelop installs in /Library/Frameworks:"

But I have Mono 1.2.6 already! And I can't find anything else on the
Downloads page except "Cocoa# 0.9.4 source".

$  mono --version
Mono JIT compiler version 1.2.6 (tarball)

I tried "gacutil /l | grep -i gtk" and got nothing. I tried "gacutil
/l | sort" and read through the list but nothing caught my eye except
competing frameworks like cocoa-sharp and System.Windows.Forms.  ;-)

I also tried Spotlight for "gtk-sharp". Nothing.

So I definitely don't have it. I also don't know where/how to get it.

*** Is anyone using GTK# on the Mac? If so, what version of Mac, Mono
and GTK#? How/where did you get it?
