A little poking looks like I was right about this problem :-(

On ppc, with the statically compiled mono-2.4 final, trying to use the embedding
samples yields this:

  cd mono-2.4/samples/embed
  gcc -o teste teste.c `pkg-config --cflags --libs mono` -lm
  mcs test.cs
  ./teste test.exe
  Segmentation fault

  cd mono-2.4/samples/embed
  gcc -Wall -o test-invoke test-invoke.c `pkg-config --cflags --libs mono` -lm
  mcs invoke.cs
  ./test-invoke invoke.exe
  Segmentation fault
