I spent a lot of time previously researching all this MSI stuff.
No, you can't do that. Merge modules might have been an answer, but
merge modules are not designed for dependencies. They are designed to
repackage files for a private installation.
The official MS party line on this is to build full .MSI files for each
of the dependencies: gtk, gtk# *2 and Mono, and then to build a
bootstrapper which uses the MSI API to install all 3. Building a
bootstrapper takes work.
