Hi Lupus,

Many many thanks for your email. I have actually just installed mono 
2.8. However I do not seem to have the "mprof-report" on my machine.

Do I need to configure and compile it with the mono-source or is it an 
independent source?

My mono is a standard system with --with-sgen=yes added..
