[Mono-dev] Building MonoDevelop 4.0.4 on Ubuntu Desktop 13.04

I'm attempting to build MonoDevelop from the git source on Ubuntu Desktop
13.04, but I'm fairly certain I'm doing something wrong.

I've got a script that builds each component, semi-closely following
doing it as a parallel install (/opt/mono).

When it gets to the point that it's compiling MonoDevelop, I always get an
error for "GnomePlatform.cs(29,7): error CS0246: The type or namespace name
`Gnome' could not be found. Are you missing an assembly reference?"

I then noticed on http://www.mono-project.com/Parallel_Mono_Environments
that one of the steps is to build gtk-sharp v 1.0.10. When I attempt to do
so (from the git source), I get errors like "art/Makefile.am:28: addprefix
$(srcdir: non-POSIX variable name".

Maybe someone that knows more can glance over my main install script
(install_all.sh) and see if perhaps I'm using a conflicting package. I'm
attempting to use the latest tag available for each project, so maybe there
are known conflicts that I'm running into.

Also, feel free to look over the rest of the installation scripts. At one
point I was installing mono-tools and mono-addins from git, but then I
noticed that when you git submodule in MonoDevelop it installs those.
