[Mono-dev] help subdependancies of native libraries without LD_PRELOAD

My mono code uses an external native library libk8055.so, but libk8055 
also wants libusb.so

In the normal C way it expects the elf linker to load libusb.so and 
fixup the function addresses, but what is the mono-develop equivalent of 
gcc's "-lusb"?


"works", but is hardly natural.

So how should native libraries dependencies on other libraries be 
specified and resolved?
a DllImport on libusb.so's usb_init (thankfully) does not solve the 
problem which is reported as:

 /usr/bin/mono: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libk8055.so: undefined 
symbol: usb_init
