[Gtk-sharp-list] Getting started on Mac

Do you have pkg-config installed?  If so, try running:
  pkg-config --modversion gtk-sharp-2.0

Presumably it will tell you that there is no package `gtk-sharp-2.0'
found.  Try searching for gtk-sharp-2.0.pc file under wherever things
are installed (sorry, I don't use a Mac so I don't really know how it's
setup).  On a typical Linux system it would be
at /usr/lib/pkgconfig/gtk-sharp-2.0.pc

Assuming that file is in fact installed, try setting an environment
PKG_CONFIG_PATH="$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/usr/lib/pkgconfig" (obviously, change
that directory to wherever it's installed on your Mac).
