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

I don't believe it is possible to move the
/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework directory to a local folder.
Nothing I have tried has allowed me to run a Gtk# app like that.

It works fine on Windows, by setting the MONO_PATH correctly. I even
tried editing .config files on the Mac to point to the local folder.

Too bad. Seemed like such an easy thing to do...
