Has anyone build gtk-sharp-2 and the others (art-sharp, glib-sharp,
gnome-sharp, etc) for RHEL/CentOS using the new (2.6.7) /opt/novell/mono
based packages?
I am the opposite of a gentoo-ish build everything from source guy.  I
like packages and I happen to be in the unfortunate position of needing
Red Hat and loving mono.

1.  Is there any chance that Novell will build these packages as well?
If you only did it for the long term supported versions that would be
2.  If this is a question of motivation, could this perhaps be a
sponsored effort (note I am not in a position to make promises, but I
want to know if it is possible)?
3.  If the above is not possible, I imagine I have to use
http://www.mono-project.com/Parallel_Mono_Environments to get started.
The only problem is that I am not looking to distribute my software as
source.  Is there a make dist as opposed to make install that will build
packages using the prefix given to the ./configure command?

Yes, I am that clueless.  I apologize.

Thank you for your help,
