It'll also be looking for the headers. Did you compile vte from source
or as a pre-packaged app? If it was pre-packaged, you need the -devel
part as well.

cd into the gtk-sharp directory, make distclean, ./bootstrap[-2.4]
--prefix=[prefix], make, su, make install

The -2.4 is if you're using mono built from svn and have the preview vsn
2 option set on it.
