[Mono-osx] ODBC - MySql - Data source name not found

Does anyone know where the odbc.ini and odbcinst.ini files should be located
for the libraries that mono uses for odbc to find them? I've tried placing
them in /Library/ODBC, /Users/username/Library/ODBC and /etc, all locations
in my searching on the net that iODBC might search for them, but no go it
seems. I can get iodbctest to connect properly, which I assume is part of
the iODBC system, which it looks like is what mono should be using to
connect via odbc, but any mono app I use still fails.
