Yes, that is used.  If that's all that's needed, you should be able to
use anything else in the Fedora SRPM that looks like it will help get
the build working.  Just leaving out that flag from the configure line::

%configure --with-ikvm=yes --with-jit=yes --with-xen_opt=yes \
--with-moonlight=no --with-preview=yes --with-libgdiplus=installed \

Yeah.  Fedora's core competency is really C and Python with
subcommunities that take care of perl, mono, java, php, ocaml, etc.  The
mono subcommunity is small and thus easily affected by the decisions of
just a few people.  That's good when they're making good decisions and
bad when they're making poor ones.
