Binaries -> /usr/bin
Libraries -> /usr/mono/lib
Headers -> /usr/include/mono

Window puts all sorts of things all over the place, for linux, they use
the above

Nope. You should be able to run anything in /usr/bin from you home
directory, you don't need to go to /usr/bin. In this case, there is
nothing wrong with using mono /usr/bin/xsp.exe

The reason it runs irrespective of where you place the binary is down to
the dlls always being in the same place.
