I don't know how far back this goes but apparently at least Yosemite and El
I installed a mono app written by M3D for controlling their Micro 3D
printer. It has a native code launcher for the main .app for Finder to
launch. It then attempts to bring up /usr/bin/mono. But that's where things
didn't work: there is no /usr/bin/mono after install mono.
I then attempted to manually create a symlink and copy the mono
Framework/bin/mono to /usr/bin.
$ sudo ln -s /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/Current/bin/mono
ln: mono: Operation not permitted
$ sudo cp -p /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/Current/bin/mono .
cp: ./mono: Operation not permitted
All the other mono binaries are missing from /usr/bin as well.
Apparently Apple is protecting /usr/bin?
I submit this as evidence:

The Apple supplied Python commands in /usr/bin all point to /System/Library
Our of the box the current instructions for testing mono after installation
don't work as mcs isn't in /usr/bin.
