I am unable to bundle Mono, even with a brand new example solution.
1) Create a new Xamarin.Mac Project
2) Enable "Include the Mono runtime in the application bundle" in the project settings.
4) The build fails with the error below:

Additionally, the first time it is built (after being cleaned) there is a warning: "Warning: Could not determine value for manifest key 'DTPlatformBuild'"
This warning goes away if you build it more than once.
That's likely because Xamarin.Mac currently* requires Xcode "Command-Line Tools" to be installed to get some tools, like pkg-config.
You can install them by doing the following:
* start Xcode;
* go to the Xcode menu;
* select the Preferences... item;
* select the Downloads icons;
* click on "install" button for the "Command Line Tools"
Once installed you should be able to build your project without error.
* future versions of Xamarin.Mac will remove this requirement (but it's often useful to have the tools installed) but it;s still required to build iOS apps.
Unfortunately, I already had the Xcode command line tools installed, so that isn't it.
Could this have something to do with Homebrew? I know you guys recently changed something in Mono 3 to get around some conflict.
Good catch, that's likely the reason - if you did not install (or keep) a previous install of the Mono SDK (since any of them would have "installed" the tool in /usr/bin).
As a workaround you can create a symlink from:
This is what the installer did (previously). I'll look at making `mmp` not depend on the /usr/bin location (for future, post-1.2, releases).
Creating the symlink worked; thanks!
When you say "future post-1.2" releases, what are you referring to? Xamarin.Mac? MMP?
It's all the same. MMP ships with Xamarin.Mac (along with XamMac.dll and a few other tools, like btouch).
Thanks for confirming the workaround!
Xamarin.Mac 1.2.33+ will have a fix built-in.
Thanks for the report!
Today we have checked this issue with following builds:
X.S 4.0 - 1645b898271456799b70944c8b356ed6c5c00fdf
Now we are able to build and run project successfully after selecting 'Include the Mono runtime in the application bundle'
Changing the status to verified.
