[Mono-list] Automated mono svn builds

I just hacked together a script to build mono (and all the packages
all the way up to monodevelop) from svn. It can be run repeatedly to
do incremental builds (in fact that's the whole point of it). I'm sure
people are sitting on better solutions than this, but since I haven't
seen any advertised on the mono website, I thought I'd mention it here
since there are people asking about it.

Here it is: http://www.matusiak.eu/numerodix/blog/index.php/2009/03/31/emerge-mono-svn/

And now for a word of warning. If you're not using a package manger to
resolve all the dependencies involved you will have to do that
yourself. It's not terribly difficult, however. If you get a message
like “You need package Hello” then you will probably find a package
called libhello-dev (or something like that) in your package manager.
However, the specifics depend on your distro, its version and all that
