In order to being able to build the C# compiler & class library from SVN
you need to already have installed a full Mono framework, or at least a
working Mono runtime, a C# compiler (mcs.exe), a couple of assemblies
like System.dll, System.Xml.dll, and another one that I forget now.

So, you're better installing from packages and after that you can
bootstrap from SVN. The preferred method for bootstrapping from SVN is
downloading the mono & mcs modules at the same directory, running
autogen.sh at mono and typing make there will build your runtime and
also the assemblies from the mcs module.

Hope this helps.
