I'm not very experienced with downloading mono from the cvs, but there's
some points that can help you:

Maybe it's good idea that you were more explicit with you explanation.
The classes must be in mcs/class/lib ... and, I if am not so wrong, the
steps must be: download the stable release, compile the mcs/ module,
build the mono/ module, and copy the .dll to your prefix.

Yeah ... the sources are in the mcs/ module, not in the mono/ module (
if I understood you ... )

You mean the mono release, right? well, they have the .exe extension
because they are in intermediate language ( they were compiled with the
mcs compiler ) and so, you don't have to recompile it again ( you only
build the mono tools ).
If hope to be ok ... :)
