[MonoDevelop] Trouble starting MonoDevelop

I am a new Linux user with the following configuration:

Fedora Core 2 (2.6.8-1.521)
Athlon 64 - 1.5GB memory

I have recently installed Mono from the latest CVS source and I can
successfully compile and run simple C# programs.  I also installed
MonoDevelop and friends, having used the SVN tutorial to acquire the
source.  However, when I try to start MonoDevelop, I get the following

> [dickw@rwwamd64 dickw]$ monodevelop
> Unhandled Exception: System.DllNotFoundException: gnomesharpglue
> in <0x000cf> (wrapper managed-to-native) Gnome.Program:gtksharp_gnome_program_init (string,string,Gnome.ModuleInfo&,int,string[],int,Gnome.Program/PropertyArg[])
> in <0x00437> Gnome.Program:.ctor (string,string,Gnome.ModuleInfo,string[],object[])
> in <0x005dc> MonoDevelop.SharpDevelopMain:Main (string[])
> [dickw@rwwamd64 dickw]$

A search for 'gnomesharpglue' reveals the following:

  libgnomesharpglue.so in /usr/local/lib
  libgnomesharpglue.a  in /usr/local/lib
  libgnomesharpglue.la in /usr/local/lib

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
