It's fairly simple to compile from CVS :-) Follow the AnonCVS instructions to
checkout 'mono' and 'mcs'. Then, look at the mono/README file, esp. the section
on building from CVS.
Once you've run the configure script, it boils down to two options:
* if you have a working mono installation, run
make bootstrap && make install
make get-monolite-latest && make monolite-bootstrap && make install
Both of these need to be run in the mono/ directory, and these assume that you
have a sibling mcs/ directory, which is built automatically. You don't have to
run 'make install' in the mcs/ directory separately.
