[MonoDevelop] Building mono/monodevelop on FC3 (please disregard previous note sent to Architecture changes thread)

On FC3 Disk 4 there are a bunch of development packages including
libgnome. These don't install by default in the development packages.
(Some may) But if you run the configure for gtk-sharp you'll note that
it will say it can't install several parts of the package because it
can't find the pkgconfig files.

If you are sure these devel packages are installed the try:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

By default configure looks for pkgconfig files in /usr/lib/pkgconfig. If
you installed the files under /usr/local prefix the path to those files
is in /usr/local... 

May have something wrong in ther but it's working for me.
