Which distro and what processor? I've found that if you're on x86_64 and
have not specified --libdir=/usr/lib64, then everything goes
to /usr/lib. When you then try to run the build script, PKG_CONFIG_PATH
only has /usr/lib64 and doesn't find gtksourceview-sharp.

A quick fix is

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

the run the autogen script

If you're using Fedora Core, gtksourceview-sharp is in Extras (along
with boo, nant and ikvm). Monodevelop is going through it's final
reviews now.
