`make install` should work, you just need to install it to a directory
that you have permissions to.

For example, running `./configure` will try to install Mono
into /usr/local, and you won't have write permissions there.  So instead
install it into your home directory, with:

	./configure --prefix=$HOME/mono

If you have a working mono install elsewhere, you should be able to use
the `mkbundle' command to merge Mono with a .exe.  However, depending on
the mono version, you might get the same libgthread error that you're
seeing from the installer.
