Thank you for your answer,
I think I can't use the Fedora people built mono for Fedora, because I need build it on aix system.
Now I met the problem is the monolite(in fact it is a basic.exe) can't run on aix, because maybe it not supported
aix, so  how can I get the source code of monolite and compile it on aix, if not, must I compile the first mono by monolite?

Thank you!

I know that the Fedora people are building Mono for ppc64 architecture. Perhaps you can use their mono to build your mono?
I don't know enough about monolite, but it seems the Fedora people are using the default monolite that comes with the mono tarball (at least on the first 4.x build, after that the previous mono version is used for building).
See the history of builds of Mono for ppc64:
On each build, you get a link to the src rpm.
eg. the first successful bootstrap build of Mono 4:

hope this helps,
