Actually, I now have the impression (?) that 'partial' is a reserved word in
the version of the compiler I am using here (I assume that would be mcs).
The word 'partial' is used as a regular (local) variable in a few occasions:

user at debian-UNSTABLE:~/ODF/Add-in/mono-HEAD-001$ grep partial
                                                                bool    partial;
                                                                partial = false;

 partial = true;

 partial = true;

 partial = true;

 // no partially selected tags here, simple checks...
                                                                if (!partial) {

user at debian-UNSTABLE:~/ODF/Add-in/mono-HEAD-001$ grep partial
                                                        int partial =
(lb_height - 2 * border) % ItemHeight;
                                                        height -= partial;

user at debian-UNSTABLE:~/ODF/Add-in/mono-HEAD-001$ grep partial
                public void CheckWithPartialName (string partial,
AssemblyCheckInfo report)
                        string p = partial;
                                        "Could not load assembly
reference `" + partial + "'."));
                [Option (int.MaxValue, "Assemblies to load by partial
names (e.g. from the GAC)", 'r')]

I replaced the occurances of 'partial' by 'partial_' and that got me through the
complete make step for mono HEAD.

Could anyone please confirm if I made the correct updates to source (or am I
using an incorrect tool chain or making some other error).

Thanks upfront for any help here,
