MD 2.0 won't be coming to ubuntu anytime soon, I think they follow the
debian "testing" branch. I'm using jaunty, which has 1.9.2, but I use the
trunk build of MD2

Since there aren't any radical dependencies, you can just say
sudo apt-get build-dep monodevelop # make sure you have deb-src urls in your

Now run ./configure from the tarball that you downloaded. You might have to
get one or two newer packages. But getting apt-get build-dep is a fantastic
feature which allows you to get all the dev-packages, build tools and other
things that you'll need to compile.

Build-dep might not allow you to compile MD2.0 from intrepid, but works fine
in jaunty. MD2 is also there in debian experimental I think.
