Mono.Unix and Mono.Unix.Native are namespaces within the assembly
Mono.Posix.dll.  There is no required relationship between assembly
names and namespace names; any number of namespaces can be within the
same assembly.

As for your problems building MonoDevelop, it would help if you could
provide the error messages you're seeing.  Mono.Posix.dll has been
provided with Mono for a long time...
