[Mono-list] make install building mcs package

Hello all,

I build all Mono packages with --prefix=/opt. Strange thing, after I have
successfully built the mcs package, and try to install it, I get the message 
that mcs is needed to perform installation, as though it is missing (it is not):

leikind@pc324:~/src/mcs-1.0$ sudo make install
*** You need a C# compiler installed to build MCS. (make sure mcs works from the command line)
*** Read INSTALL.txt for information on how to bootstrap
*** a Mono installation.
make: *** [platform-check] Error 1
leikind@pc324:~/src/mcs-1.0$ which mcs

Only if I create a symlink :  ln -s /opt/bin/mcs  /usr/bin/mcs, make install works.
The same is with the mono program, I have to symlink it.

I guess it shouldn't be so, shoud it?

Best regards,
Yuri Leikind
