What security issues? We expect user compiling programs to trust:

  a) the root or anyone else who has write access in /usr/lib/*, and
     /usr/lib/mono/gac and /usr/lib/pkgconfig specifically
  b) the users who have write access in his PATH
  c) himself, or anybody else who has write access in current
     compilation directory
This are the usual Unix assumptions.
