[Mono-osx] Build 'mono-tools' on Mac OS X with Mono 2.6.1

I have installed Mono 2.6.1 on Mac OS X. Note that I used the .dmg; I did not
build Mono myself. I installed the CSDK as well.

I have gotten the 'mono-tools' source tree from subversion so that I can
build and run some of these tools, particularly 'gui-compare'.

Here are the steps I have taken to build 'mono-tools':

1. Open Terminal
2. At the command line> source
3. Change to the 'mono-tools' directory within Terminal
4. At the command line> sh autogen.sh

Here is the error:

sh autogen.sh 
/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/2.6.1/bin/glib-gettextize: line
139: cd: /tmp/install/share/glib-2.0/gettext: No such file or directory
gettext source directory '/tmp/install/share/glib-2.0/gettext' doesn't exist
**Error**: glib-gettextize failed.

So, it is looking for gettext in /tmp and not finding it. I do have gettext
in my MAMP installation, but not sure how that might help. Do I need to
specifically install something in /tmp in order to get this to build
properly? Or am I missing this build process completely?
