As far as I know, /etc/profile only affects users created since the
modification of /etc/profile.

Installing to /usr/local will always work, as /usr/local is already in your

If, as you say, you have installed in /usr/local, then there is no need to
have anything in your .bashrc mentioning /opt/mono-$version, as nothing is
installed there!
