[MonoDevelop] Error when compiling projects from within monodevelop

try: rm -rf ~/.wapi/ and see if that solves the compilation issues

and MD stores its config potentially in two places. on 99.9% of systems
it will be:

~/.config/MonoDevelop/ with the main properties file being:

However, since we here are *all* about standards, we also check for the
use of the environment variable XDG_CONFIG_HOME (i believe), and will
use that instead of ~/.config/ if it is present. You will still end up
with a MonoDevelop/ underneath it, and the properties file is in the
same place, but your ~/.config/ will be different.
