This very much appears to be a packaging/installation issue. I
strongly recommend using packages whenever possible. Doesn't Debian
have MonoDevelop 1.0 packaged?

If you really want to build and install things directly from source, I
suggest you read:

FYI, MonoDevelop only needs GTK# 2.8 or later, so it's very likely
that you have all the libraries needed for MD already installed.
