As I understand, the following error,

I'm getting the error
make[3]: Entering directory `/home/paul/mcs/tools/security'
mono ../../class/lib/net_1_1_bootstrap/mcs.exe
/lib:../../class/lib/net_1_1_bootstrap /r:Mono.Security.dll -d:NET_1_1
-d:ONLY_1_1 -g /out:../../class/lib/net_1_1_bootstrap/sn.exe sn.cs
StrongNameManager.cs AssemblyInfo.cs
cannot open assembly ../../class/lib/net_1_1_bootstrap/mcs.exe

means you have not done mcs build in the checked out directory or
somehow mcs.exe has got deleted from your build. Anyway, if you have
working mono/mcs setup, you can get away from this error by doing

$ cd mcs/class/Managed.Windows.Forms
$ make clean
$ make MCS=mcs install

(make sure that you run 'make clean' first)
