[Monodevelop-devel] Problem building on Win7/Cygwin + mono-addins errata

Started fresh with...

$ git clone https://github.com/mono/monodevelop.git
$ cd monodevelop
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local

The build profile 'default' does not exist. A new profile will be created.
Select the packages to include in the build for the profile 'default':

1. [X] main
2. [ ] extras/JavaBinding
3. [ ] extras/ValaBinding
4. [ ] extras/MonoDevelop.Database
5. [ ] extras/MonoDevelop.Debugger.Gdb
6. [ ] extras/PyBinding
7. [ ] extras/MonoDevelop.MonoMac
8. [ ] extras/MonoDevelop.MeeGo

Enter the number of an add-in to enable/disable,
(q) quit, (c) clear all, (s) select all, or ENTER to continue:

Hit ENTER and eventually saw...

checking for MONO_ADDINS... configure: error: Package requirements
(mono-addins >= 0.6) were not met:

No package 'mono-addins' found

So, went back to github...

$ cd ..
$ git clone https://github.com/mono/mono-addins.git
$ cd mono-addins
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local
-bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

Instructions in README say "./configure", but I see "autogen.sh", so...

$ autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/local
$ make
$ make install
$ cd ../monodevelop
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --profile=core
configure: error: You must enable one of the platform bindings

OK, would be nice if README were updated with new profiles...

$ rm profiles/default
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --profile=windows
$ make
$ make install
/usr/local/bin/dmcs -debug -codepage:utf8 -warnaserror -debug
-target:winexe -r:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/../../lib/mono/3.5/Microsoft.Build.Engine.dll
 -r:System  -r:System.Runtime.Remoting   ./AssemblyInfo.cs ./Main.cs
error CS0006: Metadata file

error CS0006: Metadata file

error CS0006: Metadata file

Now I'm stuck.  Help please?
