[MonoDevelop] Flatpack information

I am having issues using the new flatpak distribution of MD. Specifically,
the project I am working on makes use of a lot of libraries that live in
/usr/lib (e.g. blas, lapack, ...). I could not figure out how to expose
/usr/lib to the flatpak, as Eberhart predicted above, that leads to
conflicts with the /usr/lib inside of the flatpak. I thought it might be
possible to go the other way, that is, add the libraries to the flatpak,
but so far have been unsuccessful. Is it possible to add files to the
Monodevelop flatpak? If so, can someone give some guidance? Thank you,
