[Mono-list] Importing from DLLs

On Unix (-like) platforms, the convention is to prefix all libraries
with "lib".  Mono is just following that convention.

So one potential fix is to rename the library so it has a "lib" prefix.

(It should be noted that Java JNI requires the lib prefix.)

Another potential fix is to edit $prefix/etc/mono/config, and add a
<dllmap/> entry for your library.  This should do what you want.
