On a clean system,
I am able to successfully install the pkg-config version 0.15.0, this is the
first dependency of Mono.
Installed as ./configure --prefix=/usr; make; make install

The second dependency of Mono, the glib-2.x (I am using glib - 2.6.0) needs 
libintl.h to be avaialble for it to build, I got hold of an old binary of
libintl.pkg from 
this completely crashed my Mac OSX.

So I picked the gettext-0.14.3 to get libintl.h as suggest in the
compilation error on terminal. 

For the gettext-0.14.3, I used
./configure --prefix=/usr; make; make install

Inorder to get hold of libintl.h, I tried to install gettext -0.14.3. though
it gave me no error, on installing glib 2.6.0, it cannot yet find the
and stops further compilation with errors.

checking for locale.h... yes
checking for LC_MESSAGES... yes
checking libintl.h usability... no
checking libintl.h presence... no
checking for libintl.h... no
configure: error:
*** You must have either have gettext support in your C library, or use the
*** GNU gettext library. (http://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/gettext.html

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
make: Nothing to be done for `install'.

Please suggest how do I go about. What mistake am I doing?

Thanks for all the help.
