consider the Fedora RPMs

All the RPMs you want/need zipped up.
$ mkdir work
$ unzip mono-all.zip -d work/
$ cd work/
$ rpm -i *.rpm

All the slackware packages are listed in the same site as well.  The
gentoo ebuilds have dependencies anyway, so emerging mono and monodevelop
take care of everything.

I haven't bothered looked at Suse, but I just wanted to point out it was
easy already.
