Thanks for looking at this.  It turned out to be a case of user error.
It seems that I ran the original build while there was a system mono +
gnome# library installed which in turn generated the C# sources by
inspecting the system libraries.  The subsequent shift to a parallel
mono stack obviously didn't affect the already generated sources.

Executing a "make clean" caused the sources to be regenerated and
resolved the problem.
