I had this problem too and had to alter the config file to point to the 
library's specific location.

Add the following to 

<dllmap dll="libX11.dylib" target="/usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.dylib"/>

You'll probably encounter more problems after.  I personally haven't gotten 
winforms working on os x yet.
