[Mono-osx] MonoMac Packaging fails

[sorry for not correctly replying, i haven't been receiving list messages]

I'm also finding it impossible to build standalone mac application
bundles using the following versions:

xcode 3.2.6
mono 2.10.2_5
mono develop 2.6 b3

building with "don't link assemblies fails with the following error.
gcc fails for two reasons:
1) libmono-2.0.a is not installed by the mono installer
(libmono-2.0.dylib is installed).
2) driver.m is not placed in the Contents/MacOS/ folder prior to running gcc.

If I create a simple/valid driver.m file and substitute the .a file
with the .dylib file, the gcc command succeeds.

The source code for mmp and the driver.m do not seem to reside in the
maccore, monomac, or monodevelop code repos, so I don't even know
where to begin looking to fix the problem. Please advise.
