[Mono-devel-list] Problems with System.Drawing

I'm using System.Drawing to make thumbnails of images. I can reference 
the assembly System.Drawing but when I use anything in it I get the error

** (bin/Club.exe:10139): WARNING **: Failed to load library 
./libgdiplus.dll.so (gdiplus.dll): ./libgdiplus.dll.so: cannot open 
shared object file: No such file or directory

libgdiplus.dll.so is located in /usr/local/lib, where I would expect it 
to be. Why isn't Mono finding it?

I'm curious as to why it is looking for "./libgdiplus.dll.so", and not 
just "libgdiplus.dll.so". Is that the problem?

I'm pretty sure this is a setup issue as I can't find more than one 
other reference to this problem (there was no solution given).
