i am waiting for that gtk port to MacOS ...  in the mean time ..
I am using  WX.Wigets (wx.net) which is native on linux,mac, and win32
its not nearly as powerful as using gtk+ direct, but it does work to produce an app to 
all three platforms now. And with wx.net it just involves including 2 dll's in your
application deployment for windows and linux. But for mac as far as i have found, you have
to tinker a bit more. I just have the mac users install the WX.net package (demo),
then have them put my app in that structure, as i am not knowledgable about packaging for
a Mac yet.
