[Mono-list] Windows installer - please test

I think, This could be due to an old issue with the windows installer that was 
there almost since 0.15.

if you descend into "{mono_home}\lib\pkgconfig" and look at mono.pc, the 
topmost line should contain :"prefix={mono_home}", where {mono_home} is the 
path to the top of the mono dir tree, for instance "c:\mono" or "c:\Program 

This is a guess at this point, but having looked at the NSIS install scripts 
for the previous versions, it seems possible to ensure that when installed, 
these ".pc" files for mono will point to the right spot. Otherwise, setting %
MONO_PATH% is an option. 

I might be wrong, but this is what i had to do in the past to solve similar 
issues with the mono Windows installers.
