[Mono-dev] ad Error Building

autogen.sh is in SVN only and is used to generate configure and some other
things and executes configure at the end.

I don't know whether the error is in build procedure or at you but you can
use an existing mono installation instead of monolite for building mcs tree.


"make EXTERNAL_MCS=/usr/local/bin/mcs EXTERNAL_RUNTIME=/usr/local/bin/mono"

instead of just "make".

Use the prefix of the installation instead of "/usr/local/"
