Did you get monolite; i.e. 'make get-monolite-latest'?

Hello all,

I have tried to compile mono on one of the Itanium2 machines at work, but at 
some point it asks for an existing mcs compiler. I am not sure how to solve 
this, as i am guessing that installing the binaries won't work there, or 
will they?

Could anyone please advise.

PS: I have pasted the error below.

Thanks in advance
