 - I would need to distribute it with the mono runtime source code

No, you don't have to bundle the source but you would have to provide
a link where they could retrieve the source. Therefore it'd be
simplest if you could use a standard mono tarball from the
mono-project website as your starting point. If you required custom
patches to that, you would have to bundle those, but that'd be
significantly smaller than bundling everything.


p.s. IANAL and all that ;)
