It seems likely that you have mixed up a source install and the
packages across /usr/local and /usr, possibly also mixing up different
parts of different versions.

Please read http://mjhutchinson.com/journal/2007/11/08/how_not_break_mono,
and if you wish to install from source, follow

The best thing to do is to remove the mono-related files from both
installs -- /usr/lib/mono, /usr/lib/monodevelop,  and all the
mono-related stuff from /usr/local (might just be easiest to remove
/usr/local/lib if you haven't installed other stuff there) then
re-install from the Mono repository packages. On openSUSE you have
access to the latest and best Mono and MonoDevelop packages, so you
shouldn't need to build from source.
