I know this is a very recurrent theme on these mailing lists, but I have
got stuck attempting to build Mono from CVS and am wondering if someone
could give me a pointer with respect to how to move forward.

I've followed various different documents with respect to how to
approach this but they all get stuck with the following error while
attempting to build mscorlib.dll...

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/chris/pub/mono/cvs/mcs/class/corlib'
mcs /nowarn:649 /nowarn:169 -d:INSIDE_CORLIB  -d:NET_1_1 -g /noconfig
/unsafe /nostdlib /target:library /out:../../class/lib/mscorlib.dll
error CS0509: class `System.Reflection.MonoGenericInst': Cannot inherit
from sealed class `System.MonoType'
Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings
make[1]: *** [../../class/lib/mscorlib.dll] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/chris/pub/mono/cvs/mcs/class/corlib'
make: *** [mcs-tree-safe-build] Error 2

I just grabbed a fresh copy of mono and mcs projects from CVS as of
about 10 minutes ago, and at present have a copy of mono version 0.28
installed from RPMs.
