[MonoDevelop] [Mono-osx] ibtool seems to be gone after update

I still don't know how to solve it, but I did figure out what the cause is. In 
MonoDevelop's execution environment the /Developer/usr/bin directory is not 
included in the PATH environment variable. 

I figured this out by executing MonoDevelop with the command 
'/Developer/Applications/MonoDevelop.app/Contents/MacOS/monodevelop' so it would 
pick up my Bash shell's environment which does have /Developer/usr/bin in the 
PATH. In this new instance of MonoDevelop I was able to compile the project 
without this error. To further prove this is a problem with the PATH variable I 
quit that instance of MonoDevelop and launched a new one by clicking its icon in 
the Dock. I added a custom build step to run printenv to dump the environment 
variables. The output (shown below) says it all.

So how do I add /Developer/usr/bin to the PATH for GUI applications not launched 
from the command line?

Executing: /bin/bash -c /usr/bin/printenv

Hi Steve,

I solved it by going back to Xcode 3.2.4. I'm not quite sure about the other 
application's versions I had installed back then. But I assume that MonoDevelop 
was 2.4, not 2.4.1.
