[Mono-list] CVS build instructions

As a Mono newbie I found it quite difficult to build from CVS.
It isn't really documented what you need.

Here is what finally succeeded (RH 9).
- glib update (don't remember which version)
- install all mono 0.28 RPMs
- install all Cairo and ICU related packages from red carpet
  (maybe not all needed, but didn't want to go through too many re-tries)
- cd to ../mcs and build mcs first (contrary to instructions,
  as I would get corlib.dll out of sync with ../mono/make fullbuild
  even after copying all current monocharge files over the ones from the RPMs)
- cd to ../gtk-sharp and do the same (don't know if necessary)
- cd to ../mono and run the recommended 
  ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/local
  make fullbuild

Did I do anything fundamentally wrong?
