What's the easiest set of packages (preferably two already in Extras but
I'll look at something under review if there isn't a whole stack of
dependencies) that shows what the problem is?  Since mono applications
in Core reside in %{_libdir} and Core's mono libraries only
put .dll, .exe, and GAC files in %{_prefix}/lib/ (pkgconfig and
ELF .so's go into %{_libdir}) I think there's something not quite right
about the wiki's statement of problem and the "%define _libdir
%{_prefix}/lib" solution.
