Maybe even better would be to have more than one config file, so various
packages can "populate" the configuration files with the proper data.
Gtk-sharp could install a /etc/mono/config.gtk-sharp that contains the
mappings for the libraries it discovered, instead of having everything
in a single file.
Another option would be to have libraries listed in /usr/lib/mono-libs,
which link to the right location, and we could probe that directory
before probing /usr/lib
