Thanks for the help Jon,

I installed mono and monodevelop from SVN, first thing I did after 
installing FC5 was remove the mono packages ;-)

I have libMonoPosixHelper.so except it is in /usr/local/lib. I'm not 
sure how it got in there if it's supposed to be in /usr/lib. Maybe I 
accidentally configured mono with --prefix=/usr/local/lib.

I think the easiest thing for me to do would be to re-install in the 
correct location, would you agree? Or will I then have two versions of 
the libraries causing myself grief in the future?
