The OP wanted a more up-to-date version of Mono. Normally, it's up to
the distro to produce a newer version of mono for the distro rather than
the mono guys (though they do a SuSE one).
As I don't use Ubuntu (I'm a Fedora guy), I'm not too sure which version
they have in their base.

This may be down to misinterpretation on my part. When I build an
application using mono, unless I want it system wide, I usually keep it
in ~/. If the intention is to package rather than anything else, then
yes, the OP needs to use the packaging system for that distro. Under
Fedora, a script is usually placed in /usr/bin to fire the binary which
will be in /usr/lib
"Space," it says, "is big. Really big. You just won't believe how
vastly, hugely, mindbogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a
long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to
Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, a truly remarkable book!
