My understanding is that Xamarin did this while using GTK and that the
Cocoa layer is already in GTK.  Are there instructions for building

I don't know anything about Xamarin except that it's a company which commercializes Mono. Mono is an 
open-source version of Microsoft's .NET framework. 

Gtk has a quartz layer which uses a few Cocoa calls to implement features where it's absolutely necessary. 
It's very much not a "Cocoa Layer" and doesn't provide the same appearance or user experience that a native 
implementation using Cocoa would. Mono has a MonoMac add-on that I think replaces Gtk+ with Cocoa for Mono 
development. Perhaps that's what you're thinking of.

Instructions for what? Writing your application's GUI in Cocoa?
