That looks fine, though it probably won't run on Windows x64 because
there's not 640bit GTK# on WIndows, and unlike the MSBuild files, the
the makefiles don't set the /platform:x86 compiler flag to make it use
a 32-bit runtime - though there's no reason why they couldn't.

It's not hard to build MD on Windows, TBH I'd suggest doing that
instead: http://monodevelop.com/Developers/Building_MonoDevelop#Windows
