I installed mono 2.4 from source code, and wrote a simple "hello world"
program to test it. It seems work fine.
I want to install monodevelop 1.9.1 from source, after running
"./configure", the console print a error message:

configure: error: Please install mono version 2.0 or later to install

But I found these in configure.in:
$MONO_REQUIRED_VERSION, has_mono=true, has_mono=false)

if test "x$has_mono" = "xfalse"; then
      AC_MSG_ERROR([Please install mono version $MONO_REQUIRED_VERSION or
later to install MonoDevelop.
Please see http://www.mono-project.org/ to download latest mono sources or

It seems that the monodevelop can't get the mono's actual version. I also
run "mono -V" and it prints 2.4.
Some ideas on that? Really appreciate for help.
