Libgnomedb now is composed of 3 libraries:
* (along with 97K stripped) which
contains the "minimum" to have data bound widgets and is about 287K
(stripped) on my box
* which has the GnomeDbSelector,
GnomeDbDbmsUpdateViewer, GnomeDbReportEditor and GnomeDbGrayBar
widgets for 88K (stripped)
* which contain GnomeCanvas related widgets for
108K stripped.

With this changes the gnomedb-sharp must create one DLL file with each
library so if you install just a part you can use the C# binding for
