[Mono-list] Incorrect path interpretation(gacutil)

It is probably getting confused on parsing options. 

In your case it really gets confused because you have separated /i from
it's argument (the path to the library) with the unnecessary -f.  Try:

mono "/usr/lib/mono/lib/mono/1.0/gacutil.exe" -i
It should work.

Try gacutil -? (or --help), to see the somewhat expanded list of options
Mono's implementation has, and also the unsupported ones.
