[Mono-devel-list] Beta1 preview (FreeBSD build problem)

Didn't realize a couple of things. a) libc.so isn't always
there on Linux and b) data/config is actually generated
by configure - the latter means I can fix this for
HPUX and get the correct name (not sure why I
didn't check this earlier).

I wonder whether configure can actually use the current
value of the libc.so link at configure time rather than have 
the version number built in to it.
