Sincere thanks, to both of you.

I'm not entirely sure what I need to work: this is for an application I 
have been asked to install, which has been tested against this version. 
I'll accept these failures for now, and use mono 2.8.1 with the 
application as planned. If I hear of problems, or when I get "real" users 
of mono, I'll install a much more recent version.

I'm just puzzled that it's failing its own cut-down installation test 

Could it be that mono 2.8.1 wasn't tested thoroughly against rhel5? Or is 
it more likely that rhel5 has since made changes which are causing the
