[Mono-dev] Mono and the LSB, or self contained installations

Hello all,

anyone have luck compiling Mono against the Linux Standard Base?

Or to put it another way, anyone have tips or tutorials or best
practices to compile Mono and deploy it with minimal dependencies?

I'm looking to deploy the minimum requirements for a Mono app along
side the application, so that it can run on as many distributions as
possible, without .debs or .rpms. And so you can basically "unzip and
run." Although I'd prefer to statically link everything that the
runtime needs, I probably won't be able to to satisfy the LGPL, but
shared libs along side the app is fine. I won't be able to use
mkbundle either due to licensing.
