[MonoDevelop] Problem building a Mac .App Bundle.

Still not solved here either: I do found a way to "avoid" it: use the "Don't
Link" option.

This does generate most of the time non-working executables, so you'll do
good to use a 2nd mac (or VM) to run the app in an OS X environment without
The main issue is that some functions don't work, and throw a NullReference
exception (probably because of the broken link process). I had this error in
the HttpUtility.URLEncode function, so I wrote my own, and I could deploy

I would love to see this fixed too. It's quite hard to get a working build
out there.

Also, there's a dependency to the libX11.dylib (in libgdiplus.dylib I
think), which is flagged as Obsolete by Apple, which can load to be not
approved. But if you're a bit creative, and the Apple man you're talking
with is a little bit reasonable, you can talk (or type ;-) ) yourself out of

Hope this helps you, and the mono team to identify the problem.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember amateurs built the ark -
