Just reporting I got similar issues compiling from the 3.8.0 tarball, on a CentOS system (with or without a previous working mono runtime already available). Not quite the message in that bug report, but failing to find a working gmcs (sorry cannot access the message details right now), with or without the make with EXTERNAL_MCS  workaround. Compiling from the 3.2.8 tarball works fine.

Curiously, no problem at all encountered with the same tarball on a Debian unstable box.

Bug 17170 is marked as "RESOLVED/FIXED" but it's still occurring with a git pull of the latest as of this morning:


The proposed workaround of

make EXTERNAL_MCS="${PWD}/mcs/class/lib/monolite/gmcs.exe"

After getting monolite and before running "make" does work, but a straight "make" fails with "Could not load type 'Mono.CSharp.CommandLineParser'"
