Thanks for the tip!

Is there a way that I can find out what .DLLs it's missing?  

I have a really old copy of a Windows Dependency Walker (DEPENDS.EXE), which
claims that I"ve got all the .DLLs that I need, but mono -V still does
nothing.  (Also - Depends.exe said that I was missing INTL.DLL, which was
definitely not in the same bin directory as mono.exe - if this is actually
required, shouldn't it have been built in the compilation process?)

Even having a list of .DLLs from a text file (maybe a file that make uses)
would be a great help!

Also - are there any post-build verification (unit) tests that I can run, in
order to double-check that my build actually went ok?

Again - thank you (all) very much for the help - sorry for asking such
newbie questions :)
