Ah, I just realised what this is. The "make run" command wasn't
written for Macs, so isn't setting the DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH like
the Mac launch script does.

Note that on Mac you can "cd main/build/MacOSX", then "make" will
build you a MonoDevelop.app package:

The Mac launch scripts are in that directory too.
