[Mono-osx] Error building mono from CVS on OS X

I'm trying to build mono from CVS, and I'm having difficulties.  I'm  
a newbie at this.  Following the README directions, I'm getting this  

 > ./autogen.sh --prefix=$HOME/Projects/mono/test
Running libtoolize...
Running aclocal  ...
Running autoheader...
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
./configure: line 20888: syntax error near unexpected token  
./configure: line 20888: `PKG_CHECK_MODULES(BASE_DEPENDENCIES,  

I am trying to build on OS X 10.4.1 (Tiger).  I do have glib 2.0  
installed via fink in /sw/lib.  Calling pkg-config directly gives:

 > pkg-config --libs glib-2.0
-L/sw/lib -lglib-2.0 -lintl -liconv

So, it should be found.  Any hints would be appreciated.  I'd like to  
be able to build from CVS so that I keep testing and logging bugs  
with IronPython on Mono :-)
