I did find a way to compile the tarballs - ignore the instructions on
the box! If you follow, word for word, the instructions for mono in the
tarballs, you'll find that things don't just compile. It was like that
with the cvs instructions, not exactly clear.

I'm not advocating my site at all - far from it. I'm advocating using
svn or cvs (as was). From my experience, compiling the tarballs is not
the easiest of things and moving from tarball to svn is a pain in the
backside as *nothing* is mentioned about needing to install monocharge
before you do the compile of the checked out sources.
