Thanks, but there is an option in MonoDevelop under menu -> Project ->
Options -> GTK# Settings:

"Target Gtk# version:"

There is only the option "2.1.2". Thus, It appears that there is
exactly a switch in MD, but I have no idea how to enable a choice.

That does not appear to be true; I have copied the binaries into a
place where mono can find them at runtime, and I get issues, such as
hanging on exiting.

How do people use the greatest Gtk binaries with Gtk#? This seems to
be a such a basic issue.
