+Product: Mono: Compilers
+Summary: "make install" in mcs package does not use mcs available in my PATH, but wants /usr/bin/mcs
+I build all Mono packages with --prefix=/opt.
+I have /opt/bin in my path:
+leikind@pc324:~/src/mcs-1.0$ which mcs
+Strange thing, after I have successfully built the mcs package, and try to
+install it, I get the message that mcs is needed to perform installation,
+as though it is missing (it is not):
+leikind@pc324:~/src/mcs-1.0$ sudo make install
+*** You need a C# compiler installed to build MCS. (make sure mcs works
+from the command line)
+*** Read INSTALL.txt for information on how to bootstrap
+*** a Mono installation.
+make: *** [platform-check] Error 1
+Only if I create a symlink : ln -s /opt/bin/mcs /usr/bin/mcs, make
+install works. The same is with the mono program, I have to symlink it.
+It should be able to use mcs in /opt/bin, as it is in the PATH variable.
