I have included this now on the makefile for distribution.

It builds and runs, but I do not know how to use it, so here is what I
get when I use it: 

PublicKey =
Error: System.NullReferenceException: A null value was found where an
object instance was required
in <0x0016a> 00 Mono.Tools.SecUtil:WriteArray (byte[])
in <0x00056> 00 Mono.Tools.SecUtil:StrongName (string)
in <0x006ab> 00 Mono.Tools.SecUtil:Main (string[])

Btw, would it be possible to have a `secutil.1' man page?
