I've installed Mono and Monodevelop for OS X as noted on the  MonoDevelop web site.   I can't tell if I have Gtk# on my system, but I thought that it's included with the Mono framework. The one thing that struck me is that there is one message that has the wrong user name:

Update - A couple of other PPC users have reported this same assertion
failure in the runtime. It seems that this particular crash is in the
Mono debug-mode code generation code. MD runs on Mono in debug mode in
order to have line numbers in stack traces. You may be able to work
around it by removing "--debug" from the Mono arguments in the
MonoDevelop startup script, MonoDevelop.app/Content/MacOS/monodevelop.
