Hi guys,

First off, im new to mono and ubuntu so I might be missing something
obvious. Im trying to compile mono from the repository, on ubuntu. I've
followed the instructions on http://www.mono-project.com/Compiling_Mono but
when I autogen I get the following error:

checking for ieeefp.h... no
checking for isinf... yes
checking for void *... yes
checking size of void *... 4
checking for -Wdeclaration-after-statement option to gcc... yes
checking integrity of package... configure: error: Your mono distribution is
incomplete;  if unpacking from a tar file, make sure you use GNU tar;  see
http://www.mono-project.com/IncompletePackage for more details

Ive tried creating a new checkout, but the package really seems incomplete.
Im 99% sure I've got mono, mcs, glib and pkg-config installed correctly.
Could someone point out what I could be doing wrong?

Many thanks, Bas
