[Mono-devel-list] monodoc redhat 8.0 rpms

perhaps someone who has actually built an rpm package can shoot me down,
shouldn't the monodoc rpm installation fail (or complain) if certain
dependencies aren't met?
the rpm -ivh monodoc  went smoothly ... but when I ran monodoc, there
was a neverending list of things (should I call them silent
dependencies?) which kept it from working properly...

to save people the trouble I ran into (which was thankfully figured out
if you have a Red Hat 8 (prob also 9) "personal desktop" installation,
make sure to install additionally the gnome *-devel packages. (this
might also affects other installation types)

I also write this here, because there might be a lot of "personal
desktop" users without gnome development experience, who were excited
like me and wanted to jump right into gtk# development
Alright, the GIST:
Shouldn't the monodoc rpm installation complain if you are missing the
devel packages? (it didn't for me). Also I had an issue with
libgtkhtml3... which was also a "silent dependency"
Anyway, the monodoc application is a real treasure for me as I try to
learn gtk#
