Question: When compiling mono 2.8 et al on Ubuntu 10.04 from the stable 
tarballs, i get this:

error CS0006: cannot find metadata file `Mono.GetOptions.dll'
Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings

The error seems to be in:

while the compilation of

I find Mono.Options.dll to be located in:

I copied it to
but that doesn't fix the error.

I read somewhere that "Mono.GetOptions is obsolete, and was removed from 
mono (changed to Mono.Options?), but debugger still have this reference. "

How can I fix this compilation error ?
Does this assembly lack gac installation ?
And would somebody please fix the gnome-sharp tarball, after all it's 
the stable source.

For now I just commented out the TestXfer.cs in the makefile, since it's 
only a sample/test.
