that's probably a bug, I will investigate that.

Well, mostly because gtk#1 targets gtk2.4 and gtk#2 targets gtk2.6,
which is not widely adopted yet. But, in my opinion, if you want to
develop mono, you have to spend some time with the building process;
if you just want to develop *with* mono, stay with the packages your
distribution ships. And I don't see a big problem here, just install
gtk#1 and gecko-sharp 0.6, you can have them in parallel with gtk#2
and gecko-sharp 2.

That decision should be made by miguel I guess.
