For Linux you could use mkbundle, but note that this limits the
architectures that your binary will run on.  It would be better to
require that users install Mono themselves, using their distro's
package manager.  If you are going to go the bundle route then at
least provide a non-bundled version so that people like me don't get
frustrated trying to install it.
