Please re-read my email, it is talking about a native .so, too :-)

If I understand correctly, you suggest writing a script that sets 
LD_LIBRARY_CONFIG and then executes your Mono executable, correct?

My objection is that this approach won't work when your Mono project is 
a class library and not an executable. The unmanaged dependency (.so) is 
still there, but there's no startup script to set the correct path in 
this case.

Placing a dll.config in ~/.mono/assemblies could be a valid workaround - 
I'm going to test this a little more and report a bug (if indeed there 
is one).

Any other suggestions?
