gfax is the one that who need to update to get it works with newer  
gtk-sharp. The gtk-sharp is now part of Mono and it has been moved to Mono  
CVS now. The current release tag is 0.98, so there should be 0.98 tarball  
to download at Mono's website.

Check gtk-sharp's website said:
The project is closely associated with the Mono project.  Development is  
proceeding in the Mono CVS repository.  The CVS Repository can be browsed  
on the web[1].
