Hey thanks,
At least I got a clue where my problems come from.
However I do _not_ have a autogen.sh. (I use the mono- package)

Atm I just patched configure itself just to see what happens next. 
I know that this is a very bad solution and I'll fix it.
However it would be nice to know what autogen script does exactly.

Once again thanks,
