[Mono-list] OS X build weirdness

I've been wrestling with the code for a couple of days trying to get 
Mono built on OS X using code from anoncvs.  I've tweaked my own copy 
of mono-build.sh so that it knows about fink (and so it knows not to 
build with gc), and now I can at least get the mono/ tree to build 
without incident.

However, I can't seem to get the mcs tree to build.  I pulled down 
mcs.exe and corlib.dll from my Linux server (which is running the 
0.24-1 redhat-7.3 rpms), installed them in the appropriate places, and 
modified the mcs script to point to mint.  All I get now is:

** (/usr/bin/mcs.exe:24622): WARNING **: Could not find assembly System
Can not open image /usr/bin/mcs.exe
make[1]: *** [mcs.exe] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 1

(I get that right after the makefile tries to fire up mcs.exe with mint 
for the first time).

Is this supposed to work yet?  Am I doing something wrong?  I don't 
need it to even work that well, I'd just like to get to the point where 
mint can has enough standard library support to actually run some test
