Well, I don't know exactly who is at fault but I suspect 
autoconf/automake/libtool (although I really don't know anything about them)

Here is where I stand:
Starting with absolutely no mono installed.
Create a new user (mono), just to keep things clean and log on as such

svn co ...mcs, mono and winforms
cd mono
make get-monolite-latest
./autogen.sh (nb the web page is wrong) --prefix=/usr/local
make fails because the genmdesc it generates is buggy somewhere in the 
linkage; when I single step through it trying to set up the table in 
init_table it passes 0 to mono_opcode_name but the function receives it as 

However if I get the daily ( and build that:
tar xzf
./configure --prefix=/usr/local

then it works.

Now I haven't the faintest idea what the difference is between the svn and the 
daily but I do note that I am using older versions of 
autoconf/automake/aclocal etc. than whoever prepares the daily tarball.
