Ouch, sounds like it was a much more difficult process than it needed to be :/

Everything needed to build MD from source is included in the Mono pkg
and Mono C SDK pkg, you just have to set the environment variables as
described on that page to make sure the build picks up everything from
Mono properly, instead of using any other tools you might have
installed on your system and in your PATH (e.g. macports).
