You compile Mono to be installed in a particular prefix, like this:

	./configure --prefix=/mono

(Thats what I use), so you end up with a Mono in /usr/bin/mono and
another in /mono/bin/mono.

Then you run a script like this to switch from the standard system mono,
to the mono installed in /mono:

bash$ source setup-mono

The "source" command there is important, then the setup-mono file looks
like this:

export C_INCLUDE_PATH=/mono/include
export ACLOCAL_PATH=/mono/share/aclocal
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/mono/lib/pkgconfig:/opt/gnome/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
PS1="mono$ "
