Well, the exception clearly states what's missing:
libMonoPosixHelper.so. This is a p/invoke dependency of
Mono.Posix and must be deployed along with you application.

You may try to manually link against libMonoPosixHelper.a
maybe using ld's --whole-archive option, but I cannot tell
you if it will work.
