 In the above, if Mono were installed under /usr it would still check
 /usr/X11R6 and /usr/local automatically when attempting to load assemblies.
+------- Additional Comments From jonpryor@vt.edu  2005-04-05 08:39 -------
+Wouldn't a potential workaround be to add MONO_GAC_PREFIX to
+/etc/profile (or wherever else common environment variables such as
+PATH are set)?
+If most users don't read docs, then they won't override the
+environment variable either, allowing things to Just Work (modulo the
+/etc/profile changes, which could (hopefully) be managed by the
+package manager).
