In general, I think monocharge is much less useful nowadays, especially
if you're building mono and mcs from SVN.

It mainly makes sense to use monocharge if you're not too patient to
rebuild mono and mcs and want a quick fix of the latest class libraries.

I think the problem the OP has (running 'make install' without running
'make') is hard to handle.  It is, in a sense, not the right thing to
do: so I won't spend any time dealing with it, and will probably reject
any patch to fix it unless it's beautiful ;-)

The way to build and install is

       make check
       make install
