Probably because README is targeted for the release, and there
./configure will be shipped, not autogen.sh, which is for developers.

Default prefix for "make install" is /usr/local. It is so because /usr
should generaly be used for packaged files, and /usr/local for the ones
installed localy from soureces.

So, you have to instruct Mono to look for GAC in /usr/local too.
You can do that by issuing:
export MONO_GAC_PREFIX=/usr/local/
