Use the `msassembler' command and install the documentation separately.

http://www.mono-project.com/Assembler has more information.

You can do this by creating a `swf-docs.source' file with the contents:

	<?xml version="1.0"?>
	  <source provider="ecma" basefile="netdocs" path="classlib"/>

Then create swf-docs.tree and swf-docs.zip files with:

	mdassembler --ecma System.Windows.Forms/en -o swf-docs

where System.Windows.Forms/en is the directory containing the
monodocer-generated documentation.

Then install this documentation with:

	cp swf-docs.source swf-docs.tree swf-docs.zip \
		`monodoc --get-sourcesdir`

Close and restart monodoc to view this documentation.
