[MonoDevelop] Build from git failing on fresh Ubuntu 13.10 installation

I have a brand new installation of Ubuntu 13.10. I have tried several
different ways to build monodevelop from git, all of which failed. In my
latest attempt I am following this guide:


I am able to install everything without issue right up until the end. When
building monodevelop I get this error:

(Build target) ->
(default targets) ->
/usr/lib/mono/4.5/Microsoft.CSharp.targets (CoreCompile target) ->

    Mono.TextEditor/BookmarkMarker.cs(69,9): error CS1502: The best
overloaded method match for `Cairo.Context.SetSource(Cairo.Surface)' has
some invalid arguments
    Mono.TextEditor/BookmarkMarker.cs(69,20): error CS1503: Argument `#1'
cannot convert `Cairo.LinearGradient' expression to type `Cairo.Surface'

Does anyone recognize this error or suspect what may be the cause?

Is there a more reliable method for building monodevelop from source?
