gthread-2.0.pc(in tar archive), or edit yourself that should look like

Downloaded mono-2.0.1
Downloaded libgdiplus-2.0

Take coffee, enjoy.

I hope, in near future we will see the success results from

I want to create packages and upload them. I am not an expert on compiling

I am very thankful to Yasuaki from Mindtouch.
