This didn't actually fix things, the build broke looking for the
glib-sharp assembly.

the problem was that I had gtk-sharp-2.0 installed and the dbus build
on svn://mono.myrealbox.com wants the 1.0 build.

I got past that and ran into other problems.  It now looks like I'll
have to rebuild my D-Bus from the FreeDesktop.org CVS in order to get
a working dbus-sharp built from source.

I'm a tad nervious about this hosing my Fedora Core 3 system to the
ground, as I've found Redhat releases to be very fragile in this

Anyway, we'll see.  Thanks for everybody's help.
