[Mono-list] All-in-one Mono folder on Mac?

I'm trying to make an all-in-one folder containing all the necessary
parts of running Mono for a cross-platform Gtk app on Windows and Mac
(Linux too, but that is easy).

This works fine on Windows... just copied the necessary bin and libs,
set the appropriate paths and it works.

However, on the Mac, it seems that there are hard-coded paths that
require the code to be in /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework.

Is this correct? Or is it possible to somehow get mono to run fine in
a folder which could be anywhere on the Mac?

I'd prefer to use this method (rather than trying to get, say,
mkbundle to work) because we load some code dynamically. Also, I'm
using Gtk so can't use MonoMac.

Any advice appreciated!


PS - more details at:

Also, the app is a programming environment for teaching programming,

Most of the students have Macs this semester, so this would be great
to make it easy to install!
