[Mono-devel-list] missing monoresgen.exe in building Mono on Mac OS X.

I'm compiling Mono using mono-build.sh on Mac OS X 10.3.  I've  
installed some fink packages in the past, so I have automake, autoconf,  

*  I put mono-build.sh in /usr/local/bin, and added /usr/local/bin to  
my path (it's not there by default on Mac OS X).
*  I had to unset my existing CVSROOT environment variable.
*  aclocal complained about "macro `AM_PROG_LIBTOOL' not found in  
library".  I believe mono  put libtool in /usr/bin/libtool, but fink  
had set up aclocal previously to look only in /sw/share/aclocal.  (The  
warnings and mono-build.sh comments were very helpful, thanks.)  To get  
past this I set
	ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I /usr/share/aclocal"

(I hope these findings are useful to someone.)

mono-build.sh then chugged away merrily until it failed with

	creating libmono-profiler-cov.la
	(cd .libs && rm -f libmono-profiler-cov.la && ln -s  
../libmono-profiler-cov.la libmono-profiler-cov.la)
	make[3]: Nothing to be done for `all-am'.
	Making all in docs
	make[2]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
	Making all in runtime
	Making all in .
	cp -f /Users/spage/mono/install/bin/monoresgen.exe .
	cp: /Users/spage/mono/install/bin/monoresgen.exe: No such file or  

I didn't even have a mono/install/bin.  I found a Makefile to create  
install/bin/monoresgen in mono/scripts, but monoresgen is a just a  
wrapper that execs monoresgen.exe.

What creates monoresgen.exe?

BTW I see someone on the "Got Mono BB" has a similar problem with  
missing monoresgen.exe on Fedora,

Thanks indeed for any suggestions!
