So I've done the first and it certainly got past that error, thank you. 
As GAC seems so vital, why would/should asp.net be unaware to look in

Either way, I've now gottena FileNotFoundException:
System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown
by the target of an invocation. ---> System.TypeInitializationException:
An exception was thrown by the type initializer for
Mono.Website.Handlers.MonodocHandler --->
System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not find file "/monodoc.xml".

What needs to be done so that it looks in /usr/lib/monodoc/ for the
required files of monodoc, or do I need to just copy them somewhere

Thanks in advance,
