I have a question:

I noticed that when I run nant from a fresh install of Mono, it fails
saying that it can't find the mono profile.

After digging a little bit, I found out that the problem is with
pkg-config which is called by nant to find where mono is.

The problem with pkg-config trying to find mono is that pkg-config
says it can't satisfy mono requirements:

Requires: glib-2.0 gthread-2.0

This is found inside mono.pc file.

The problem seems that glib-2.0.pc file and gthread-2.0.pc files
aren't in the osx install.

If I comment this line in mono.pc, everything works ok. But I don't
know what I may be breaking with this change.

Am I missing something?

I can see that if I compile Mono from source, I'll get those .pc
files. But I think the osx installed should have those files.

Thanks in advance.
