Hi folks,

I'm looking to compile MonoDevelop from subversion on Ubuntu Fiesty Fawn. I'm 
trying to follow the 'Installing from Source' instructions on 

... but upon trying to configure #  Gtk# 2.8.3 I get

checking for MONO_DEPENDENCY... checking for gacutil... /usr/bin/gacutil
checking for al... /usr/bin/al
checking for csc.exe... no
configure: error: You need to install either mono or .Net

I also tried a commandline apt found here 

... but still I don't appear to have the pre-requisites for csc.exe :(

I currently have the Ubuntu installed. I haven't installed the 
mono-devel package. Is Ubuntu a good reasonable platform to carry out 
MonoDevelop development? Or if there is a good link to a useful resource on 
getting MonoDevelop on Fiesty compiling that would be cool.

Any help greatly appreciated.
