Yes, like I already suggested you may need to install your distro's  
GNOME development packages, often named gnome-dev or gnome-devel.  
With such GNOME development files installed you can build gnome- 
sharp.dll from sources, install it and have MonoDevelop find it.

Some distros split up the .dll files in one package and the .pc files  
in a -devel package; if you build it yourself you get both files and  
do not need an rpm binary package.

Also note that at least on Ubuntu the package is called gnome-sharp2  
(no gnome-sharp package).

autogen.sh is usually a script in an SVN checkout that is used to  
generate (and call) the configure script. If you already have that in  
a source tarball you call call configure directly.
