I asked this question on the list a few weeks ago but no response. Maybe a
different set of eyes happen across it this time.
I'm trying to build gtk-sharp from SVN. I have a stable mono installation
in /usr, but I also have a bleeding-edge installation at
/home/stephen/bin/mono-svn. I want to use the mcs found there
(/home/stephen/bin/mono-svn/bin/mcs) b/c I plan to install gtk-sharp there,
and the 'stable' compiler in /usr is much older.
I have my PATH set up for my user account so that the newer mono is the one
that should be seen. I.e.,
`which mcs` returns the expected /home/stephen/bin/mono-svn/bin/mcs.
When I run ./bootstrap-2.4 --prefix=/home/stephen/bin/mono-svn/, however, I
get the following summary after configure runs:
* Installation prefix = /home/stephen/bin/mono-svn/
* C# compiler: /usr/bin/mcs
Notice that it picked up the compiler in /usr/bin/mcs, even though that's
not the one in my PATH. I checked ./configure --help, but don't see an
option to force the compiler to use a certain mcs (though I have been known
to suffer from temporary blindness.) How can I force configure to use the
