[Mono-dev] make --disable-mcs-build fails

I'm trying to build mono, but without building mcs.  This is mainly to 
support the debian packaging.  However, it fails when it tries to build 
the mono docs as it needs mscorlib.dll.  Can I build mono without 
building the docs as well?  Any other thoughts appreciated.

./configure --prefix=/usr/local --disable-mcs-build
