You copied corlib.dll and you should copy also System.dll (and
System.Xml.dll). But if you use cvs mono, you'll also need the
assemblies build from the current cvs. See the monocharge packages from

Simple programs compile fine using mint, compiling mcs has been reported
to fail (it may be the same issue as on *bsd, though: excessive stack
usage, and that should be fixed in current cvs).
