Recently MonoDevelop switched to using the Json.NET NuGet package so make
now tries to restore NuGet packages before building.

nuget should be available in the mono-nuget package on Linux. On the Mac
recent versions of Mono ship with nuget.

Otherwise you can build nuget from source and then install it. The source
code for NuGet is available from:


If you do not want to build it from source there are NuGet binaries
available from:


Then you can setup a /usr/bin/nuget script something like following,
replacing the paths as needed:

    exec /full/path/to/mono $MONO_OPTIONS$ /full/path/to/nuget/NuGet.exe
