acording to a post in the list, guys are having simillar problems when 
mono is compiled with "--disable-static", do you know if is used when 
the fedora rpm packages are compiled/created?

sorry if I sound to hard, but honestly I'm pretty tired about the poor 
support of fedora for the mono things, I also offer me and my Univ help 
to some of the koji packages guys, but they don't take it...
