[MonoDevelop] Building Mono/MonoDevelop from git source

Today I decided to get the latest version of MonoDevelop. From github I
got the sources for mono/debugger, mono, mono-addins and monodevelop.
The remaining dependencies came from ubuntu 10.10 packages.

The new mono was installed first and the remaining packages was built
and installed with the newly compiled mono compiler.
Everything was done with the /opt/mono prefix.

It all compiled fine but when I try to start monodevelop I get a single
    Unhandled Exception: System.TypeLoadException: A type load exception
has occurred.

Other mono applications from ubuntu also fail in this new
environment(somewhat expected), still some of my own (non-graphical)
applications work fine.

Does anyone have any idea what could be missing?
