+Summary: configure.in specifies mcs [patch]
+Description of Problem:
+Just pulled a fresh copy of monodoc from svn, and got compilation error
+after trying the .autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/local then running make.  There
+was mcs compile error indicating assignment was required.  Looked at code
+and the line (1177 in monodocer.cs) was using generics - which needs gmcs.
+Modified configure.in to specify gmcs rather than mcs, re-ran configure,
+and everything compiled and seems to work normally.
+here is the diff:
+mmorano at aeris ~/mono/monodoc $ svn diff configure.in
+Index: configure.in
