wow, fast response :)

I wasn't sure if it was a gentoo bug, I searched bugs.gentoo.org but 
found nothing
that was like this problem.

and ya, I checked the /usr/lib dir.  All the dlls are in there :/

I just got my friend to emerge mono and mcs works for him.  I don't 
know what is
up with mine.  .....trying.....trying..... :P

K, just resolved it.  Though I feel shaky about why this resolved it:
emerge -C mono gtk-sharp
which mcs   returned a hit so I d/led the monocharge and
cd /;rm -Ri `ls ~/monocharge-20031026/*`
emerge mono
mcs --version

and it worked.  *shrugs* to this one but it worked so I am happy.  I 
emerge gtk-sharp or monodoc yet though :)
