I'm thinking about stepping back from this, catching my breath then coming back to it when I can budget more time to understand and control your build procedure perhaps allowing multiple versions to coexist. 

I can explain you how I do it. Maybe it will also work for you.

I have two versions of Mono coexisting. One of the is the Mono version
installed by the standard Suse packages. It is installed in /usr/lib and
I never manually update it. This is the stable version I need to run all
Mono desktop based apps (beagle, f-spot and friends).

On the other hand I have another version I use for development only.
That version is installed in my home directory, in the
"/home/lluis/install" prefix. I install the bleeding-edge version of all
libraries and applications I need in that prefix (including MD):

./configure --prefix=/home/lluis/install
make install

Then I have a 'dev' script which sets the environment variables needed
to use that prefix. This script contains:

export PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/lluis/install/lib:/usr/local/lib
export MONO_PATH=/home/lluis/install/lib:/home/lluis/install/bin
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/home/lluis/install/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/opt/gnome/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

After running this script in a terminal with ". dev", mono applications
launched from that terminal will use the development mono version and
all the libraries installed in my home dir. 

In fact I have a terminal profile which automatically runs this script
when I open it (using "bash --rcfile /home/lluis/dev" as custom

Hope it helps,
