Likely to are missing a -devel or -dev package (depends on distro).
GTK# is a wrapper for the native GTK+ libraries - to build GTK# from
source, you need the developer bits for GTK+.

However, I *really* recommend you use packages for as many of the
MonoDevelop dependencies as you can. If you really do want to build MD
plus dependencies from source, please follow
