The configure scripts use pkgconfig to find assembly packages at
compile time. However, it's possible for them to be installed in a GAC
in a prefix that Mono doesn't search by default at runtime, e.g.
/usr/local, becuase th Mono GAC paths and the pkgconfig search paths
are independent. Setting MONO_GAC_PREFIX=/usr/local (or whatever) will
fix this.
