[Mono-dev] Building mcs from source without mono

I placed this in mcs/build/profiles. (I tried a couple different  
values for BOOTSTRAP_PROFILE, but can't figure out what it should be)

Then i do:

cd mcs/class/corlib
make PROFILE=unity

(This is on a completely clean 2.4 mcs svn checkout)

the output i get is:

make all-local
cd ./../.. && make PROFILE=net_1_1_bootstrap
Running make from the mcs directory is not supported. Run make from  
the parent directory (if using a tarball), or from the directory  
where the runtime is checked out (if using an SVN checkout).
make[2]: *** [dir-check] Error 1
make[1]: *** [../../class/lib/net_1_1_bootstrap/sn.exe] Error 2
make: *** [do-all] Error 2

Is there something else i have to change to run this on a clean mcs
