Build completed after, stepping though the Makefiles and adding the 
Mono.Addins.dll reference where needed, but it won't be fun to run 
configure again unless there is a better way.  Also I noticed that 
NUnit, while installed in the gac, is not found either.

Anyhow, after setting MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME I am this close now:

ERROR [2008-10-17 11:40:25Z]: Error initialising GLib logging.
System.DllNotFoundException: libglib-2.0-0.dll

I am not sure what to do at this point, but I will keep trying.
