Ok, I've got more info on this now...

Even though I've got /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig in PKG_CONFIG_PATH, I
can't compile *any* apps that use -pkg:gtk-sharp (or gtk-sharp-2.0 for
that matter). I *can* compile a simple Gtk# app (example 4-1 from "Mono:
A Developers Notebook") using:

$ mcs Main.cs -r:/usr/local/lib/mono/gtk-sharp/gtk-sharp.dll

The reference is cut'n'pasted from the output of:

$ pkg-config --libs gtk-sharp

So, why can I compile with explicit -r: references, and not -pkg:
references? Are there some more environment variables I should be
