You can't just copy over the pc file like that.

gtksourceview-sharp-2.0 is the 2.0 version of the binding to gtksourceview 1
gtksourceview-2-sharp is the binding to gtksourceview 2

Gtksourceview 1 and 2 are not API compatible.

Since gtksourceview 1 has been deprecated for a while, someone really
needs to port the boo binding to use gtksourceview 2 - or, better,
make it work with Mono.TextEditor.
