[MonoDevelop] Haven't been able to build in weeks

Hey, Sorry for the long post. I'm running Ubuntu Dapper. I've got 
MonoDevelop 0.9 installed without trouble but I keep tabs on the 
development side through svn. It's been at least 2 or 3 weeks since I've 
been able to successfully build MonoDevelop from SVN. Even with the 
default options enabled (which now appears to include nunit by default) 
I get fairly far along, but as soon as the build goes into making NUit, 
I get the same failure:

Making all in NUnit
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/mattisking/cvs/monodevelop/Extras/NUnit'
mkdir -p ../../build/AddIns/NUnit

-out:../../build/AddIns/NUnit/MonoDevelop.NUnit.dll -target:library

error CS0006: Cannot find assembly `nunit.core.dll'

Compilation failed: 2 error(s), 0 warnings

I've got nunit 2.2.0-1 and libunit-cil 2.2.0-1 installed. I read on 
http://www.monodevelop.com/Troubleshooting a note:

Debian users only
Install the nunit and libnunit-cil packages (requires unstable at this 
moment). Due to the separate packaging of nunit, we need to make a 
symlink so that monodevelop knows where to find the pkg-config file.
ln -s /usr/lib/pkgconfig/nunit.pc /usr/lib/pkgconfig/mono-nunit.pc

I tried this without any luck. Any recommendations?
