Well, this is still broken.

Even if the build machine "supports" gtk# (you must not use it at this point), someone who
recompiles the `mcs' module will most likely also compile `gtk-sharp' and the other
modules - and then type-reflector will suddely depend on a gtk-sharp.dll which has been
replaced by a newer version after type-reflector has been replaced.
