Did you run autogen.sh after CVS updating?

Well, if you want to hack on the class libraries, that is an issue
currently.  We have not modified the build system to use MCS yet and
System and Corlib do not compile yet with MCS.

If you just want to develop C# apps, you should be for the most part
fine.  That being said, you will need the class library documentation,
which we still do not ship/have in any usable form.
