While setting up mono/fastcgi for a customer on their RHEL 6 server at AWS, I got the error "No package ‘mono’ found" when trying to configure xsp. This post shows the error and the simple solution.
I’d already compiled mono and then ran configure in the xsp directory and got the following output. I was surprised to be told that mono could not be found.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables MONO_MODULE_CFLAGS and MONO_MODULE_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details.
Run this first:
And then run ./configure in the normal way.
This should work for RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) 6 and CentOS 6, and possibly earlier versions of these Linux distros as well. I ran these commands on RHEL6.
