Hm, I remember a similar problem with gluezilla on my Ubuntu-9.4.  I 
don't recall how exactly I solved it but suppose I've compiled mono and 
gluezilla myself.

You can try running

MONO_LOG_LEVEL=debug mono myapp.exe | grep gluezilla

on the second machine.  In theory this should reveal which locations did 
mono try to find the lib and why it doesn't find one.

About the problem on your first machine I have no idea.  Maybe others 
have to say something about it.
