I've never heard of "make run" ... If you successfully built monodevelop, you should probably just launch the "monodevelop" binary directly.

That being said, here's the advice I would normally give you - Building monodevelop from source can be quite tricky, and I don't recommend it.  The easiest best thing to do, unless you have a reason not to, is to use a mac or a modern ubuntu desktop.  The mac version simply installs, no problem.  The ubuntu package repositories have a decent version of monodevelop included, so you can just simply install via apt or whatever.
