My main Gtk# development machine is amd64, so I'll second Todd's motion.

There are 3 "moaning that .net or mono needs to be installed" messages,
but 2 specify gacutil and al as a specific missing requirement too.  So
since you didn't mention that I suspect it is the 3rd one which results
from not finding mono.pc and AC_PATH_PROG not finding csc.exe.

Since you are building on mono, apparently your issue is a failure to
find mono.pc.  On a 64 bit build I would suspect the whole libdir=lib64
thing.  Mono is most likely stuffing the pc file in
prefix/lib/pkgconfig.  Make sure your PKG_CONFIG_PATH isn't doing
something like prefix/lib64/pkgconfig.
