Thanks. If that's the case then I should be good. I wonder how the line got in there at https://github.com/mono/gtk-sharp stating that gtk 3 is required. There is a whole world of dependencies when that becomes the case,

MonoDevelop 4+ still requires Gtk+ 2.x and Gtk# 2.x, it will not work with Gtk+3.
