[Mono-devel-list] Error Building

I'm a bit confused. According to Paul's site, the first thing to do is to completely remove mono from your system (didn't really apply to me since the machine was clean). Are you saying I should install a mono tarball? Do I then remove it later?

Also, as a newbie, what does the ./configure do?

Until people don't report the issue, they won't get fixed.
The easy way to compile from svn is to first install
a recent released mono tarball. If you have already messed up
your mcs module, you migh need to rm -rf mcs/class/lib and svn update
the mcs module again. Then, just run autogen.sh in mono/ and
use the usual ./configure; make; make install.

If this fails, we need people to provide a useful error message,
which you'd get by compiling a sample C# program with mcs in your case.
