Hi folks, 

I'm trying to run my WinForms executable on Mac OS X Leopard, using official
Mono Framework 2.8.1 . 

It crashes and I'm always getting this message : 
An exception was thrown by the type initializer for System.Drawing.GDIPlus
---> System.DllNotFoundException:
turned on debug to have more details : 
Mono: DllImport loading location:
Mono: DllImport error loading library: '(null)'.

I've read the FAQ, which says this file may be missing, but I'm pretty sure
it's here : 
# pwd 
# ls libgdi* 
libgdiplus.0.dylib   libgdiplus.dylib

I also thought it may be due to a missing Xorg dependency. So I downloaded
and installed it using MacPorts : 
# port install xorg-server

I ran the program from a xterm, but same message here... 
I have no problems running it on Linux with Mono. 
Can somebody help me ?
