The installer bundle will install to /opt/mono-

If you install as root (which you will probably have to, to install to /opt,
then the path info will be in the /root/.bashrc file.

The contents you require in the ~/.bashrc is:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/opt/mono-"
export PATH=$PATH:/opt/mono-

Then you'll need to logout (of all consoles/Xterms), then log in again.
Apologies if I'm teaching you to suck eggs.

Then try:
$ mcs

Hopefully you'll get an error like so (or similar):
error CS2008: No files to compile were specified
Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings
