Are you on x86_64?

For some misguided reason, Fedora moves all the Mono CIL assemblies
from $prefix/lib/mono to $prefix/lib64/mono. This means that
MonoDevelop is unable to find them. They also seem to like to ship
alphas/betas of MonoDevelop in stable releases.

I recommend you just install Mono and MD from source in a parallel
environment, e.g. /opt/mono:
