I updated the devkit at www.bat.org/~tomba/sb-mono-devkit.tar.gz, and now 
it works for me with the newest scratchbox (debian packages). I didn't 
encounter that problem you describe... Did you reset&reconfig your host 
target? If you upgrade scratchbox installation don't reset the target, you 
may run into problems. You may have some old libc installed in that 
target, and when you change to use a new toolchain, gcc's and libc's 
versions may differ.

Short instructions of what I did:

in host machine:

cd /scratchbox/devkits
sudo mkdir mono
sudo chown valkeine mono

in scratchbox:

Create HOST target, with host-gcc. I selected debian and perl devkits, but 
I don't think they are actually needed. If you already have a HOST target, 
better to reset it first and then reconfigure it. Then just cd to the 
sb-mono-devkit directory, and make. It downloads mono 
oand glib automatically.

I didn't have time to try Gtk#, but I did compile helloworld.cs and it 
compiled and ran fine inside scratchbox.
