[MonoDevelop] no syntax high lighting/compile from source fails too

To: whoever is interested.

I found partial answers to these problems:

1.) I uninstalled monodevelop 0.10.0, and went back to the version that is 
installabe through kynaptic. It's monodevelop 0.9.6. This version will crash on 
initial load, but after an update of the "boo" package from 0.5-something to 
boo-, it starts and I can get syntax highlighting! It seems dependencies 
are not resolved correctly by kynaptic/monodevelop or whoever.

Nor are they o.k. with the installer version: 
Just to be sure, I reinstalled the 0.10.0 to test the situation with the boo-0.7...
no on my system.

But Syntax highlighting still seems to be broken in 0.10.0.

2.) The compilation from source did not work because of a bug-or-whatever
in midnight-commander who did some weird things with the monodevelop...tar.gz archive.
After extracting through tar, "make" ran trough up to a point where unresolved dependencies abounded.

I gave up. The instructions on "Installing from Source" on the monodevelop homepage did not work out for me.

I hope this is useful to someone.
