Here's the response I got from the mono mailing list:

1. pkg-config problem:
I'm currently working on version 2.4.1 moonlight since it's the latest
stable. It apparently is supposed to work with mono 2.6 but 2.10 is
what F15 has, hopefully 2.6 is only a minimum.
Sadly it's not a minimum, or even a guideline - it requires the exact
expected version from its own altered 2.6 branch (based on 2.6.1, I
think). The class library build works by doing a full build of the
regular 2.6 class tree, then binary-patching the output to create
Silverlight versions of libraries from the 2.0 versions.
You'll need to bundle the appropriate 2.6 release, and mangle the build
process to handle it.
is the makefile used to build the package on Ubuntu - although I've deleted the
package since it doesn't support recent Firefox, and seems to be dead upstream.
I don't know it's practical to keep a matched pair of moonlight & mono
plus that sounds a lot like static linking of libraries. What a mess.
If we want to move forward it sounds like we'll need to add the appropriate
mono sources to this (source) package and I'm not sure RPM Fusion will allow
