If you're going to install from source, you need to read and follow this:


Chances are that before, you installed your custom mono into a non-/usr 
prefix, and Banshee was looking for gtk-sharp and friends in the older 
/usr-installed Mono.

But the best thing, as Alan suggests, is to use a recent distro with 
recent Mono packages.  On openSUSE, for example, you can subscribe to a 
repository that gets you preview versions of Mono if you need them.
