I know - I've built boo and a few other apps with it.

monodevelop - it won't work without the libdir hack

monodevelop.

gtk is currently broken, but monodevelop will compile and start up.

Fair enough. From the packages I've built using mono (which are quite a
few), if something depends on a package (such as monodevelop requiring
boo, ikvm, monodoc and gtksourceview-sharp), you really need the libdir
hack. If it's a standalone (such as nant), it's not.

However, for simplicity, having the hack there just means everything
will always build.
