1. You believed the instructions. They *should* say to set DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH
instead of DYLIB_LIBRARY_PATH. This bug's been pointed out many times :-(

2. You're using an unhelpful distribution of Mono. If you compile it
yourself from darwinports <http://darwinports.opendarwin.org/>, you avoid
having to mess with any environment settings.
