Thanks Matt, but 'fraid not.  I did:

# cd mono1.1.3
# ./configure --prefix=/usr
... lots of stuff and all ok ...
# make
... lots of stuff ...
est -z "/usr/lib" || mkdir -p -- . "/usr/lib"
 /bin/sh ../../libtool --mode=install /usr/bin/install -c  
'libmono-profiler-cov.la' '/usr/lib/libmono-profiler-cov.la'
libtool: install: error: cannot install `libmono-profiler-cov.la' to a 
directory not ending in /usr/local/lib
