Yes, but in my experience, it's messy.

Compile mono as normal to your local directory. When you come to execute
mcs, you need to say /home/paul/bin/mcs -

(where /home/paul is your home directory, /bin is whereever the mono
binaries live, /lib whereever the mono libs live). I have a feeling
you'll also have to tell it to use the includes from /home/paul/includes
as well.

As I say, can be done, but is messy.

Failing that, run autogen.sh --prefix=/opt and then you just need to
say /opt/bin/mcs. Slightly less messy, but still a pain.
