The x11-toolkits/gtk-sharp was tied to the previous version of lang/mono.  Both
lang/mono and x11-toolkits are intimately intertwined--and this is only likely to
get worse before it gets better.

Another problem is that the gtk/gnome libraries we have in the ports tree are
more advanced then the ones used as sources for the API extraction in the xml
files that gtk-sharp uses to generate C# code.  I'm re-hacking the xml to
match what we've got in the ports tree, but it's slow going because this portion
of gtk-sharp is particularly poorly documented.

Nevertheless, I'm working hard to get gtk-sharp 0.99 out just as soon as I have
a working gtk-sharp.
