The procedure that I have been using is similar to the one on the Mono
ARM port page http://www.mono-project.com/Mono:ARM

On the Host, build as normal (not cross compile)
    make install DESTDIR=`pwd`/tmptree

Copy the files from tmptree to your Target platform.

On the Target platform, build mono without mcs:
    ./configure --disable-mcs-build
    make install

This will install over the top of the files you copied from the Host.

I can't get the mcs or gmcs to work on my Target, but I can run
assemblies compiled on the Host OK.  I have a bug open for this issue:

Good luck,
