gda-sharp is a libgda wrapper, and libgda is part of Gnome's database
access stuff. I imagine it's included in gtk# so that if C code returns
a gda type you can still use it, but not included in the gtk-sharp
packages because you should probably be using System.Data (or ByteFX or
npgsql, or however it is that they go) for .net-friendly data access
stuff rather than libgda.
