are compiling from svn head, you can be expected to. Curious how you
compiled libgdplus without devel)
For prebuilt packages, the solution is to either make the package
require -devel, or to create a System.Windows.Forms.dll.config file
for the platform that performs the appropriate mapping.

+As you say, the correct fix is to either (1) provide a
+System.Windows.Forms.dll.config file, or (2) to edit
+mono/data/config.in and add libX11.so there, so that the appropriate
+versioning policy is specified. (I'd guess that (2) is the easier of
+the two solutions.)
+More importantly, this problem won't be limited to developers. Though
+the original submitter claimed to compile from svn-trunk, the same
+problem will occur for non-developers using the RPM packages. The key
+issue is that libX11.so is referenced, but won't exist on the end
+user's machine (unless they install N MB of -devel packages...).
