What I found was this: I tried debugging the one built in MonoDevelop 
for Linux and it couldn't find (in Windows without mono installed but 
with monodevelop installed) Mono.Posix version .. The one i 
built in MonoDevelop for Windows did not look for Mono.Posix as far as I 
can tell.

Is Mono.Posix linking a specific feature of MonoDevelop for Linux?  Or 
is that a mono compiler issue?  OR did i mis-check a checkbox somewhere?

If I want to build in linux, do i need to somehow include that for 
Windows users?

It seems like it shouldn't be necessary if the windows version without 
it runs on both Windows and Linux.

Thanks in advance for any guidance.
