Four questions.

First - why are you doing this as root? Root is there for a purpose and
it isn't just so you don't have to keep typing su to change to it. On a
machine, it can be considered a major deity. It has the power of life,
death and existance on a box. Mess something up as root and you can (and
probably *will*) do some serious damage!

Second, is this a compile from cvs and if it is, is it via and update
and if it is from an update, what happens if you ditch that version of
mono/mcs and do a fresh checkout?

Third, what distro are you using? I know with Fedora Core, things aren't
always happy in that /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig isn't always checked -
this could be something similar.

Fourth, when you ran autogen.sh, did you specify anything with --
prefix=3D? (ie. --prefix=3D/usr). Again, problems can occur if you're in as
root or have specified somewhere insane for your libraries and apps to
