There aren't any for FC2 either.

There are some for FC3, but the file names indicate that they are
actually for NLD9.

It's fortunate then that I've spent the last couple of days putting
together a "Mono compilation on Ubuntu (Warty)" cheat sheet. Does pretty
much the same as your instructions (not checked out your latest script
yet), but covers all the dependencies you need. It should be trivial to
adapt it for use with Fedora Core 1 or Debian (I'm thinking of changing
distro on my server anyway), and it will mean I can play with the xsp2

If I'd have known how easy it is to run Mono from source, I'd have done
it ages ago instead of relying on packages...
