Oops, I had mistakenly not replied to the list, I don't usually use 
gmail via the web UI and I missed that detail.

Anyhow, I did figure out the problem.  The build command is missing the 
reference to Mono.Addins.dll, eventhough it does have 
Mono.Addins.Setup.dll properly referenced.

Exploring src/core/MonoDevelop.Core/Makefile:

MONODOC_LIBS = /r:/opt/mono/lib/mono/monodoc/monodoc.dll

while it becomes fairly obvious what the problem is, I don't however, 
know why.

The really annoying part is that all of the Makefiles are like this, so 
for now, since I don't know any better, I will have to edit them 
manually.  Any further hints would be great.

BTW am I crazy trying to get Monodevelop to run on OpenSolaris?  My 
motivation has been renewed since there is now the start of a vi mode, 
and I would like to help make it better at some point.

Thanks, Zak
