I just managed to compile from SVN on Windows - doesn't run though 
(crashes as soon as I start it), but at least it compiled :)

Here's what I had to do:

1) make sure the installed Mono is in the front of your path variable

2) I had to call autogen.sh with --enable-nls=no

3) the build process hang when building mono/docs, so I looked in the 
Makefile of that directory and did a touch on the files it tried to 
create (some *.tree and *.zip files). I figured since it's only 
documentation it doesn't matter if I have those files or not.
