I guess it is not the way to go. The dlls are installed to lib64 after
my patch. If ./configure is passed --libdir=/usr/lib64, I don't think mono's
makefile should be wiser than the user and install elsewhere.

I guess the best way to go here would be to install to /usr/share. If
the GAC is going to support AOT-ed assemblies, then it should be in
two locations -- /usr/share (dll files) and /usr/lib (or /usr/lib64,
Or maybe there is something architecture specific in the IL assemblies
I don't know about?

Well, I would call this ugly ;)
