If you just needed the GTK# assemblies, you could either bundle the
dlls with your app, or if you really want, statically link them with
the Mono link.

Unfortunately it's not that simple, as you need GTK+ and various
unmanaged glue libraries too. You could bundle these with your app
too, but it would make more sense just to invoke the GTK# installer
from your program's installer.

Hopefully there will come a time when we can assume that GTK# is
present on windows ;-)
