This does select which gth-sharp to be used. "2.12" is the latest one.
To build for older Gtk-Sharp you have to install them as an addon.

You have to overwrite the old files delivered with mono.

I'm using them with my application by copying the binaries to the
applications directory. I did not try to let MonoDevelop itself run with
updated gtk binaries.

The Gtk 2.24 might have some incompatibilities since it is an migration
step to GTK3.
