The Browser assumes that in its current directory it will find a number
of things:

	sources/ directory

You have to compile and do a make install to get it to work, a script
called `monodoc' will be available.

If you want to hack on monodoc, I suggest you first install it, and then
in the monodoc/browser directory create a symlink to the directory where
you have your sources:

	cd monodoc/browser
	ln -s `monodoc --get-sourcesdir` .

These changes are part of the "productization" of monodoc, now it will
compile and install things.  

If you have any problems, let me know, I want to make sure people have
no problems getting this working.  Do not hesitate to contact me
