Mono 2.8 has switched to its own eglib (embedded glib).
This means that every tool that depends on glib (like mkbundle)
does not work anymore, especially on platforms that don't come
with glib (Windows, Mac OSX).

A simple workaround would be to comment out all #ifdef _WIN32 blocks
from mcs/tools/mkbundle/template_main.c and recompile mkbundle.

If you can't recompile, using mkbundle's "-c" option and a manual
compilation after you've changed to output accordingly should
work as well.

Please file a bug.
