I'm trying to build mono from git sources
./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/local && make && sudo make install

, but unfortunately it fails like this:

make[6]: Entering directory `/home/tavasti/build/mono/mcs'
build/common/basic-profile-check.cs(13,67): error CS0234: The type or 
namespace name `AllowReversePInvokeCallsAttribute' does not exist in the 
namespace `System.Runtime.InteropServices'. Are you missing an assembly

Any hints?
