Just in case it's useful to someone, I recently setup a CentOS 5 repo of
mono for x86_64. It contains libgdiplus, mono, xsp, mod_mono and nant (I
use it for web servers).

"I've setup a yum repository with CentOS 5 mono builds (x86_64 arch
only). Not all mono components are there yet, right now I'm only
building the ones I need: libgdiplus, mono, xsp and mod_mono (nant is
also included).

The packages are built without any extra repository dependency, so
should work on stock (fully updated) CentOS5 installs and maybe RHEL5,
but I haven't tried. The repository will have the last two stable
releases and will track fedora's devel specs and patches as much as

I'm using the builds for production CentOS5 systems, so they are
reasonably tested and you'll get new builds following mono releases."
