This is the shell script still pointing to mcs.exe... I'll change and 
update the .pkg this evening (PST). For now, edit /usr/local/bin/mcs, 
which looks like this:

/opt/local/bin/mint /opt/local/bin/mcs.exe "$@"

and change the paths from /opt/local/bin to /usr/local/bin.

Great. I'll give a chance for others to reply also before we branch off 
a discussion and copy the result here for other to follow. I suspect 
there are many in the "new" to Mac/ UNIX world from Windows lately. 
While it's not brand new to me, it's been a while... since university 
basically for me.
