Attempting to compile Monodevelop master on CentOS, get the following error:

[root at localhost monodevelop]# ./configure

Configuring package: main
Configuration options:
Running aclocal  ...
Running automake --foreign  ...
Running autoconf ...
Running ./configure --enable-maintainer-mode --enable-compile-warnings
--prefix=/usr/local ...

^CompatVersion ../version.config|cut -d "=" -f 2|tr -d '\n')'
[root at localhost monodevelop]#

This is actually after receiving the following error, but rerunning
configure seems to "resolve" it.

[root at localhost monodevelop]# ./configure --select

The build profile 'default' does not exist. A new profile will be created.
Select the packages to include in the build for the profile 'default':

1. [X] main
2. [ ] extras/JavaBinding
3. [ ] extras/ValaBinding
4. [ ] extras/MonoDevelop.Database
5. [ ] extras/PyBinding
6. [ ] extras/MonoDevelop.MeeGo

Enter the number of an add-in to enable/disable,
(q) quit, (c) clear all, (s) select all, or ENTER to continue:

Configuring package: main
Configuration options:
Running aclocal  ...
Running automake --foreign  ...
configure.in:3: installing `./install-sh'
configure.in:3: installing `./missing'
Running autoconf ...
configure.in:1: error: possibly undefined macro: m4_esyscmd_s
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
**Error**: autoconf failed.
[root at localhost monodevelop]#

Any thoughts?
