[Mono-devel-list] Hardcode $(prefix)/lib for assemblies rather than use $(libdir)

Hey guys,

We have been having problems packaging on amd64. Basically, the issue is
that we need to install .so files to /usr/lib64, but (apparently, and I
don't know why here) we want to install assemblies to /usr/lib. I have
attached a patch that does this.

Installing to /usr/lib for .dll files seems weird for a few reasons:

      * The decision to install to lib (vs share) implies that we want
        the freedom of arch dependent assemblies. Wouldn't this imply
        that we want to install to lib64?
      * We would have to install the .pc files for, eg, gtk# into lib64,
        as the lib version of the pkgconfig dir isn't searched. This
        would be a bit funky
