[Mono-list] building after checkout

I'm building Mono on MacOSX from source that I get via 'git'.  

Imagine there are two commits, A and B, both reachable from the branch I'm on, and historically in that order (B is younger).  I've built A.  When I say 'built', I mean:

	./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/monotip
	make clean; make; make install

If I use 'git checkout' to move to commit B, then what's the minimum I need do to build it?  

When I just do 'git checkout B; make', I am told that eglib can't be built because aclocal.m4 doesn't exist.  I can repeat the commands I used to build A, but I hope there's a better way.
