Look in your /prefix/etc/mono for config where "prefix" is your root 
prefix for you mono install.  There will be a file named config.  Change 
the line saying

         <dllmap dll="libX11" target="libX11.so.6.2">


         <dllmap dll="libX11" target="/usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6.2">

or wherever your actual libX11.so.6.2 is.
