argh, as I explain in all my post, the goal is have the monodevelop 
debugger addins, so yes I know about the fedora 10 and koji fedora 11 
packages, but those don't include the monodevelop debugger addins. Also 
as I explain in a later post, is posible to compile just monodevelop 
using the mono core installed by the f11 koji packages, but the 
monodevelop debugger addins don't work and claims about:
## DebuggerServer started
EXCEPTION: Mono.Debugger.TargetException: Unsupported `mono' executable: 

So, probably the RPM guys seems to be compiling mono core in some way 
that make imposible for the debugger addin to work...

So what are my options?, try to to compile ALL by mysefl to no depend on 
koji things...but here is where the mscorlib problem came in...

By the way, this is a question about the mscorlib problem compiling 
mono, I'm pretty tired about the fedora support for mono, so please 
don't tell me to wait until something that is going to come for fedora 
and things that "might have", I prefer to try to solve directly the 
compilation things and posible make my own paquages for the Univ.
