Patch to take libdir into account.

MonoDevelop installs things into $(prefix)/lib even if libdir argument is provided on the ./configure line.

In attachment is a patch fixing that issue.

This is intentional, MonoDevelop is not architecture-specific, so it doesn't make sense to put it in an architecture-specific libdir. The same applies to Mono's CIL libraries.

Also, in order to make such a change, it would be necessary to test and fix all the things that depend on the existing behavior.
