[Mono-dev] Problems with gtk# on a mandriva system.

Hi folks,

I've just tried to install mono on a mandriva system and so far most of it 
seems to be working, but..  I can't get gtk# working.

If I do

 mcs SimpleApp.cs  -pkg:gtk-sharp

I get..

Package gtk-sharp was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk-sharp.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk-sharp' found
error CS8027: Error running pkg-config. Check the above output.

I turned on PKG_CONFIG_DEBUG_SPEW, followed by pkg-config --libs gtk-sharp and 
got heaps of .pc files, none of which were gtk-sharp.

mono --version gives..

Mono JIT compiler version 1.1.15, (C) 2002-2005 Novell, Inc and Contributors. 
        TLS:           normal
        GC:            Included Boehm (with typed GC)
        SIGSEGV:       normal
        Disabled:      none

pkg-config --version gtk-sharp returns 0.19 (which I don't understand since it 
can't be found at other times).


any help would be appreciated.
