[Mono-osx] where is System.Windows.Forms.dll on OS X ??

I have downloaded a sample app which has a Linux Makefile with the

    $(CS) -target:library -out:$@ $(Sequencer_files)

I get the following error when running Make.

    error CS0006: Metadata file
`/usr/lib/mono/2.0/System.Windows.Forms.dll' could not be found

So the Makefile doesn't cater for OS X installs.  I searched my
filesystem and think these are the most likely files I should reference.


Are these the correct library DLLs to reference ??

Should there be symlinks in /usr/local/lib when Mono is installed so
that standard POSIX Makefiles are more portable ??

Thanks -- Brendan.
