[Mono-list] Newbie help?

... hey, if this isn't the appropriate place for an experienced sysadmin who
has RTFM to ask probably ignorant questions, where do I do that?

To recap: I've followed the instructions in the beginner's HOWTO. I have the
"mono" source tree compiling ("/mono") out of CVS - however, that doesn't
appear to include the "mcs" source tree, which bombs out with the following

Thomas:mcs$ make
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/thomas/mono/mcs/build'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/thomas/mono/mcs/build'
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/thomas/mono/mcs/jay'

s literal.cs location.cs modifiers.cs namespace.cs parameter.cs pending.cs

cs cs-parser.cs
make[1]: *** [mcs.exe] Error 255
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/thomas/mono/mcs/mcs'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

I really want to get this working so I can start hacking C#.
