Ha!  Lucky for me I already own the book -- I just forgot I had it :-)   
I stayed up fairly late last night figuring out how it all works, and I 
successfully (as far as I can tell) compiled a .dll and installed it 
into the GAC using autotools.

My next question is this:  How do I make it so that the package can 
appear in the GAC in Monodevelop?  After the package was installed, I 
fired up Monodevelop to see if my DLL appeared in the GAC, but it was 
not there. Is there something else I need to do?
