Awesome. Thanks for the reply. That seemed to get me RMPs finally! 

Something i noted during RPM creation..

/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/mono- line 6823: LC_ALL: command not
/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/mono- line 6823: LC_CTYPE: command not
/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/mono- line 6823: LC_COLLATE: command
not found
/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/mono- line 6823: LC_MESSAGES: command
not found

Is this an issue? RPMs were built but noticed this during compiling.
