I have read this post, however it is somewhat out dated. 
http://go-mono.com/forums/#nabble-td19813648 is definitely worth a read

That might be a good idea, since I looked at a script that I initially 
used and one version had a mistake in it.  So I will give this a shot, 
and setup proper/correct environment scripts for each package.

Nice, I hope it goes well.  I am running snv_98 and have thought of 
updating to 99.

One challenge has been with finding all the dependencies, and what 
packages the headers are in since I am new to OpenSolaris. Here is what 
I can remember, have so far:

SUNWgnome-common-devel (pkg-config is here)
FSWxorg-headers, SUNWxorg-headers (maybe both needed?)

there might be something missing, so if anyone finds another please add 
to the list
