Sorry I missed this bit from my last reply. Everything is installed
from a recent SVN check out. They are all built as per normal and
installed with the prefix /usr.

Mono its self is built from the SVN so I could get a recent version
for the debugger. The original reason I was using  SVN versions and
not the current release. Mono appears to be working fine with other
lagre mono applications (like banshee), so I am fairly confident its
install is good.
