Wrappers for C# are now built in as an official package. (Previously a separate project, libtcod-net). Unfortunately, C# bindings are only available for the older 1.5.1b1 beta release, not the latest stable version, 1.6.0.
Mac OS X users of the current in-development version 1.6 will need to look to libtcod-mac. The current stable release 1.5.1 includes Mac support.
