[Mono-list] ASP.NET MVC 4 on Mono 2.11.3 - View not found

I'm trying to get the RTM (final) version of ASP.NET MVC running on Mono
2.11.3 (compiled from source). The steps I've taken were:

   1. Created new ASP.NET MVC 4 project in Visual Studio (using the default
   "Basic" template)
   2. Added the MVC assemblies as deployable dependencies (Project menu ->
   Add Deployable Dependencies -> Ticked "ASP.NET MVC" and "ASP.NET Web
   Pages with Razor Syntax")
   3. Published a release build of the site to a temporary directory
   4. Copied the temporary directory onto my server
   5. Configured nginx to use Mono via FastCGI

I'm getting an exception stating that the view could not be found (*The
view 'Index' or its master was not found or no view engine supports the
searched locations*). The view files do exist in the Views directory and
the same site works on IIS 7.5 on Windows Server 2008. I'm *not *using
precompiled views at all.

Here's the exception details:

> The view 'Index' or its master was not found or no view engine supports

> ~/Views/Home/Index.aspx
> ~/Views/Home/Index.ascx

> ~/Views/Home/Index.vbhtml
> ~/Views/Shared/Index.cshtml
> ~/Views/Shared/Index.vbhtml

Version Information: 2.11.3 (tarball Sun Aug 19 21:05:27 EST 2012);
ASP.NETVersion: 4.0.30319.17020

Any ideas?
