Hmmm.... doing this:
export MONO_GAC_PREFIX=/usr/

Allows me to run my programs.  So, apparently I installed mono twice,
once with -prefix=/usr/local and once, later with --prefix=/usr.  I
installed all of my libraries with --prefix=/usr

I did
cd /usr/local
for i in `find ./ | grep -i mono`
rm -rf $i

and it fixed the problem. Also I cleaned up extra stuff from
/ur/local/lib and /usr/local/bin.  Fortunately, this was a very clean
system with practically nothing in those folders.

Just a note for the archives. I hope no one else does this the way
I've done it. But, you live and you learn...
