I built the mono libraries from source on OSX (El-Capitan)
Following are the details

$ ./mono --version
Mono JIT compiler version 4.3.2 (master/88dbb86 Fri Jan 29 13:48:53 PST
Copyright (C) 2002-2014 Novell, Inc, Xamarin Inc and Contributors.
TLS:           normal
SIGSEGV:       altstack
Notification:  kqueue
Architecture:  amd64
Disabled:      none
Misc:          softdebug
LLVM:          supported, not enabled.
GC:            sgen

Now when attempting to run another project in XCODE that was generated
through cmake . Mono crashes and points to the file mono-config.c
The following statement

char *p = strstr (attribute_values [i], "$mono_libdir");

if (p != NULL){

const char *libdir = mono_assembly_getrootdir ();

size_t libdir_len = strlen (libdir);  //Crashes as libdir is null

char *result;

any suggestions why it is crashing and how I can fix it ?
