[MonoDevelop] Building Monodevelop

Good evening,

I am trying to build MonoDevelop from tonight's git repository commit git://
github.com/mono/monodevelop.git and the Mono JIT compiler version 2.10.2
(tarball Sat Oct 15 01:51:39 CDT 2011).  I am using ./configure
--prefix=/opt/mono-2.10, make, and make run.

The issues I have run into so far follow:

1.  $csc flags in the Makefiles all contain the value "no" - seems to be
fixed after installing automake; I had previously created an alias for dmcs
to "no" in the /usr/bin file prior to installing automake in this

2.  in Addins, MonoDevelop.VersionControl.Subversion.Unix contains files
(LibSvnClient.cs, SvnClient.cs which refer to an assembly not available,
MonoDevelop.VersionControl.Subversion.Gui) that will not build.  After
commenting these, I am able to get a build.

3.  While I am able to get a build, make run yields the following error:

Unhandled Exception: System.TypeLoadException: A type load exception has
  at MonoDevelop.Startup.MonoDevelopMain.Main (System.String[] args)
[0x00000] in

Can anyone advise on how to get a good build or what I'm doing wrong here?
I've got gtk# 2.12.10, so this requirement is met.  I needed the latest
mono to get mindtouch running and haven't been able to run MonoDevelop
since I upped Mono.
