A quick test shows this works here and that the .dylib is part of the .app

Can you tell me the versions of Mono and MonoDevelop you're using ?

The next version of mmp will detect the need for libMonoPosixHelper.dylib based on the [DllImport] not on the reference of Mono.Posix.dll. 

That should remove cases where another assembly, beside Mono.Posix, requires libMonoPosixHelper.dylib and also reduce the application size when Mono.Posix does not actually need libMonoPosixHelper.dylib.
