There are two different answers I have to this question -- choose the
one you like.

1. Look at mkbundle2.

2. Unless you are customizing part of mono, you should not package
mono with your app.  One of the benefits of writing against a
framework like mono is that multiple applications can share a common
environment, which simplifies administration and saves disk space.
You negate both advantages by distributing mono with your app.  Most
Linux distros package Mono these days -- it's not very taxing on end
users to require it to be installed.
