   Gtk# is currently not exactly "easy" on OSX at the moment; however 
installing mono is quite simple; download the .dmg from the website and 
install it like any other dmg.  Additionally a Cocoa# user has 
contributed Xcode templates which will call mcs for you (I'll have to 
dig them up if you're interested or send a mail tot he cocoa# list).
