[Mono-devel-list] Suggestion regarding AnonSVN Page

Yesterday I downloaded the Mono source with the hope of doing some work
on the ByteFX MySQL data provider.  Wanting to be sure I got the most
recent version of everything and that it would be easy to stay up to
date, I used the instructions from the AnonSVN page.

Until then I knew nothing about the autoconf tools except to run the
configure script before running make.  I finally got everything to build
after running:

libtoolize --force
automake --add-missing

I'm sure to most of you this is quite obvious, and there may be a better
way to do it.  If someone could add this information, or an improved
version of it to the AnonSVN page it would save others like me a couple
of hours of head scratching.  Maybe a README in the SVN version of the
source would be appropriate too.  

I would volunteer to write this documentation, but I'm such an autoconf
noobie I wouldn't trust myself.
