[Mono-devel-list] Using embedded Mono from Mozilla XPCOM

Adding the `pkg-config` line did the trick.  The part that I'm stuck on
now is that the mono_jit_init (path-to-my-dll) is returning errors once
I'm running Mozilla and my XPCOM module is running.  I get the following

** CRITICAL **: file assembly.c: line 583 (mono_assembly_open):
assertion `filename != NULL' failed

After getting this error, Mozilla exits.

Anyone have an idea on this?
