This appears to have been an error in th 2.4.3 release notes. AFAIK
mdb only works in Mono 2.6. Even then, Monodevelop for MacOS does not
include the mdb addin.

I suggest waiting for Mono 2.6 which should be out soon. It has the
new "soft" debugger built in, and MonoDevelop 2.2 also has built-in
support for the soft debugger. SDB is much more portable, and works
very well on MacOS
