I came up against this yesterday, building Mono on AMD64 Ubuntu Breezy...

I guess the old version of Cairo (0.3.0) included in libgdiplus
doesn't interface with the latest version of Glitz. Firstly, it's not
necessary to remove Glitz and Cairo dev packages from your system.
Just pass --disable-glitz to the libgdiplus configuration script
(thanks latexer on #mono!)

That fixed it for me; hope it works for you.
