No, I can assure you that I did not install anything, unless make
bootstrap installed it.  The /opt/mono prefix was working before the
make bootstrap, as it's the prefix I've been doing all my development on
since the tarball was published.

Maybe the monoresgen script needs to be installed into the tmpinst
prefix, or maybe it isn't pointing to the tmpinst version of
monoresgen.exe?  Just a thought.
