[Mono-list] Using qt#

Providing the full path to the library will permit compiling the program. 
However, it does not solve runtime problems. For example, if I move Qt.dll 
from into /tmp, "mcs -r:/tmp/Qt.dll test.cs" will succeed, but "mono 
test.exe" will fail because the runtime will not find the Qt.dll assembly.

Setting MONO_PATH=/tmp will permit the runtime to find the assembly.

(I'm not recommending installing libraries in /tmp. It's just an example of 
moving a library to a place that the runtime does not normally check for
