[Mono-dev] problem building mono, can't get monolite to work

I'm also trying to build mono on opensolaris 10 x86-64 and got this message:

when I run ./configure --with-gc=boehm

checking gc.h usability... no
checking gc.h presence... no
checking for gc.h... no
checking gc/gc.h usability... no
checking gc/gc.h presence... no
checking for gc/gc.h... no
checking for GC_malloc in -lgc... no
configure: error: "GC requested but libgc not found! Install libgc or run
configure with --with-gc=none."

I had built and installed the latest boehm gc I could find. I think it was
version 7.sth.

Anyone knows what to do now? And if I configure mono using --with--gc=none
how can I add a gc later? o_O??
