Hi Pablo et al.,

I've compiled the latest Mono trunk on S10 5/08, and faced some issues  
but two different ones: ;)

* GNU gettext or something was probably not installed, so gmake failed  
early when trying to process mcs' .po files. As a workaround I added -- 
disable-nls to the configure switches.

* I had r104591 (post-1.9) installed, and compilation of the net_2_0  
assemblies failed due to some class missing in the old mscorlib.dll  
apparently. Removing the installed Mono and using the latest monolite  
instead worked fine however. I remember having such an issue before -  
is this expected?

Btw I noticed that lacking git-svn (didn't find the SVN Perl files on  
S10 on quick search...), Mono from my Git repo wrongly said "Mono JIT  
compiler version 1.9 (tarball)". I'll see if I can piece together a
