Well shoot.  On the mac, right now, I can build master.  But then when I build an application against it to test FileSystemWatcher and try debugging what's wrong with it...  The FileSystemWatcher simply does nothing.  Never raises a single event.  I run the same application against MDK 3.2.6 or 3.2.7 and the FSW at least raises events... but since I didn't build them, I can't very well debug it.

So then I git reset --hard and git clean -f, and checkout 3.2.7.  It failed to build after 13 mins, because gdb was trying to attach some process requiring sudo, prompting me for admin credentials while I wasn't around.

I have now git reset --hard and git clean -f again, and checkout 3.2.8, currently building...

Meanwhile, I also built an opensuse machine to try doing the same stuff on.  It failed to build master, with this:  
/usr/bin/mkdir -p '/Users/eharvey/Projects/mono-build/share/libgc-mono'
/usr/bin/mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/Users’: Permission denied

Which is of course silly, because /Users/eharvey/Projects/mono-build already exists and I do have permission to write to it.  So to complain about mkdir /Users ....   

In both systems, the build command I am using is as follows:

time (rm -rf ~/Projects/mono-build && mkdir ~/Projects/mono-build && ./autogen.sh --prefix=/Users/eharvey/Projects/mono-build --disable-bcl-opt --enable-nls=no && make && make install && echo "" && echo "      Done." && echo "")
