[MonoDevelop] Error compiling gtksourceview

The clue is there in the info you posted.  The install program is saying 
that although you have GTK2 installed, you have GTK 2.2.1 whereas 
GTKSourceView requires GTK 2.3.0 or newer.

Upgrading your GTK2 to the latest version should fix this.

If you believe you already have got a more recent version of GTK2 
installed, then check where you have installed it, and that you've 
removed any older versions from your system.  Somewhere on your system 
will be pkgconfig files (with a suffix of .pc if I remember rightly) and 
by finding out where the .pc files are located and looking at the .pc 
file for GTK2, you can find out what version the system thinks it has 

Also make sure that wherever you've installed GTK2 is included in the 
system path.  (If you're setting --prefix=/usr then  /usr should almost 
definitely be included in the system path)

I hope this helps,
