[BUG] Bug in lang/mono and request to rollback x11-toolkits/gtk-sharp to 0.17

I'm making progress on getting comms/gfax 0.6.0 to work, but I'm
having some issues with lang/mono and x11-toolkits/gtk-sharp.

First, lang/mono:

Using the following command line (for example):

# mcs -pkg:gnome-sharp something.cs

causes mcs to core dump with a locking violation in libpthread
on -CURRENT.  Internally, mcs is supposed to be calling

pkg-config --libs gnome-sharp

to extract the DLL's that are referenced.  I can work around as

# mcs `/usr/local/bin/pkg-config --libs gnome-sharp` something.cs

But this leads me to the problem with x11-toolkits/gtk-sharp
version 0.93--it's incompatible with comms/gfax.  Moreover,
http://gtk-sharp.sourceforge.net/ lists 0.17 as the present
release version.  Unless there's something out there that
needs 0.93, I think a rollback to 0.17 would be in order--
comms/gfax 0.6.0 compiles fine with it.
