[MonoDevelop] Trunk build failed on Ubuntu 9.10 beta with CS0040

Thanks! That was definitely it.

I am able to build everything except for the Boo bindings, which fails with:

Boo Compiler version (CLR v2.0.50727.1433)
./Gui/ShellTextView.boo(79,19): BCE0005: Unknown identifier:
./Gui/ShellTextView.boo(84,46): BCE0019: 'SourceTagTable' is not a member of
2 error(s).

Perhaps I need a more up-to-date version of Boo than the one in the repos?
Also, I originally did not have Boo installed and it did not complain when I
configured the build, just threw an error (unknown executable booc, or
something of the like). I installed whatever the default boo is (0.8.2
apparently) then ended up where I'm at now.

It's not a huge deal for now as I have all the functionality I'd like in the
immediate future, but it seems like there's a bit of a disconnect between
the packages required by ./configure and what's actually needed to build.
Would these be considered bugs?
