Thank you for that. After having to point 
PKG_CONFIG_PATH to /usr/local/src/gtk-sharp-1.0/gtkhtml/ I have no got the 
./configure for monodoc-0.18 complete successfully but when I attempt a make I

Now what have I missed? I have no directory called ./../../mcs/errors and in 
fact ./../.. has no relationship to mono or monodoc ? The directory I am 
attempting to build in is /usr/local/src/monodoc-0.18 and therefore ./../.. will 
put me into /usr/local which has nothing like mcs in it.

If on the other hand I "less class/cs-errors.config" I get:-

Note however that there is no ./cs-errors.config. The cs-errors.config exists in 
/usr/local/src/monodoc-0.18/class and contains, as you can see from the above a 
hardcoded reference to ../../mcs/errors. Please tell me how I should now 
proceed? Especially as I am very, very new to mono and therefore that is why I 
am trying to get monodoc working.

You may be sure that when a man begins to call himself a "realist," he
is preparing to do something he is secretly ashamed of doing.
