In debian, the command

dpkg -l mono*

will give a list of all mono components available in debian (well, all that  
start with mono), and the first column will say if the pacakge is installed  
or not.  For example, a section of the output on my computer looks like:

ii  mono-common    1.0.2-1        common files for the Mono CLI runtimes
ii  mono-jit       1.0.2-1        fast CLI (.NET/Mono) JIT compiler
ii  mono-mcs       1.0.2-1        the Mono C# compiler
un  mono-mint      <none>         (no description available)
ii  mono-utils     1.0.2-1        Mono utilities

dpkg --purge <list of packagenames> is used to purge packages (which means  
remove everything, including config files that might have been created).   
This must be run as root, where the dpkg -l can be run as any user...

Might be useful information to add, since the rpm stuff is there.
