> The following patch makes Mono relocatable.
There is a small bug in this patch, non-mono tools do not work, because
of my extra checking, I will remove such checks.
> Currently our installer uses a bunch of wrapper scripts around
> everything (mono, monodis and others) to overwrite the built-in prefixes
> that we use during the build process.
> With this patch, Mono becomes relocatable, as long as the whole Mono
> installation from the prefix is preserved in the layout expected by
> This patch has a special case: if Mono is installed with
> prefix=/usr, it assumes that configuration is on /etc (which is how we
> configure Mono today when we distribute it). Other than this case, the
> patch will work with a relocated Mono.
> This will also aid for those who need to bundle Mono with their
> applications without having to rebuild Mono: they can just ship the Mono
> files that we distribute from packages.
> Am running my Mono environment with this patch. Any objections to
> get this in?
