Thanks for the pointers Michael!

Others, perhaps as confused as I; might enjoy the following:

dalem at BrainIac:~/Projects/monodevelop> ./autogen.sh
**Error**: You must have `intltoolize' installed to compile MonoDevelop.
dalem at BrainIac:~/Projects/monodevelop> sudo zypper install inittool

Now ./autogen.sh does many good things. And I launch monodevelop, open
monodevelop and tell her to run, baby; run. Many wonderful things happen
with only warnings in Build, but Application gets:

Cannot open assembly

And there is no MonoDevelop.exe in the /home/dalem/Projects/monodevelop/
branch. MonoDevelop help about version So I exit
monodevelop and start
her up again; then open the monodevelop solution coax her to run baby, run
again. This time lots of other stuff gets built and version runs.

Thank you bunches!
Dale E. Moore
