I'm trying to install MonoDevelop 0.18.1 on my Gentoo system (just via
source, not creating ebuilds).

The portage tree doesn't have an ebuild for Mono.Addins 0.3, so I got
the source and:
sudo make install

and now the libraries are in /usr/local/lib/mono/mono-addins

I then got the monodevelop sources and tried (as per the README):

No package 'mono-addins' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables MONO_ADDINS_CFLAGS
and MONO_ADDINS_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Shouldn't the make install of the Mono.Addins source have added the
correct pkg-config metadata? How do I point monodevelop to use those
libraries, or should they have been installed somewhere else?
