[Mono-dev] Problems bootstrapping git x86 build from git

Hello all,

I've run into the following compilation error attempting to build from
tonight's git repository. I'm sure it's some bootstrapping step I'm
doing wrong, but the problem persists even after a git recharge. Any
ideas or pointers? [I've done a recharge to /usr/local, which my tree is
configured to reference. I also have the SuSE mono package installed
under /usr]

Thanks in advance,
