[Mono-osx] Requesting tool attention for OS X

Poking around the web, I found "monodoc"
(http://www.mono-project.com/Monodoc), but it doesn't appear to be
available for Mac.

I saw someone reference "mdb" in IRC, but that's missing too.

There is also "mkbundle", which is present, but not working:

$ mkbundle -o hello hello.exe --deps
OS is: Darwin
Sources: 1 Auto-dependencies: True
   embedding: /Users/chuck/Scrap/dev/sharp/hello.exe
   embedding: /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/
as -o temp.o temp.s
temp.s:2:unknown section type: symbol_stubs
temp.s:2:Rest of line ignored. 1st junk character valued 112 (p).
temp.s:3082:unknown section type: symbol_stubs
temp.s:3082:Rest of line ignored. 1st junk character valued 112 (p).

That's all on Mono on OS X 10.6.1.

I just installed Mono 2.6 preview 1 with no improvement.

Then I tried MonoDevelop for the first time. It won't launch because
it claims that I don't have Mono 2.4 or later (obviously I do). There
is a MonoDevelop preview download listed with the Mono 2.6 preview,
but it's MonoDevelop 2.0 instead of 2.2.

Mono works great for me on Mac in terms of compilers and non-GUI
libraries. But the other tools seem non-existant or broken.

Are there any insights from Mono project folks such as "get monodoc
here" or "change mkbundle options to this"?

If I need to fill out bug reports, let me know.
