Right now, gtk-sharp requires the 1.1 SDK to build.  Starting with the
2.10 installers though, I'm told that the installer doesn't require 1.1.
There is no technical reason I am aware of that the gtk-sharp assemblies
should require 1.1 at runtime.

Can you confirm which installer you are referring to?
