po/mcs is a directory in git with many files, but somehow in the 3.0.8/3.0.9/3.0.10 release tar balls, the whole directory is wiped and replaced by a file which looks like a file list. This cause autogen.sh to fail (probably will cause ./configure to fail also?):
**Warning**: I am going to run `configure' with no arguments.
If you wish to pass any to it, please specify them on the
`./autogen.sh' command line.

po/Makefile.am:1: error: required directory po/mcs does not exist
**Error**: automake failed.
removing po/mcs and unpacking the same from the git mono-3.0.10 tag lets this move forward. This seems to be a packaging error.
Confirmed, I can't update the openSUSE package because of this:
config.status: error: cannot find input file: `po/mcs/Makefile.in.in'
Workaround while waiting for fixed tarballs:
mv mono-master/po/mcs/ mono-3.0.10/po/
rm -rf mono-master master.zip
Then ./configure and make work fine.
This was fixed a while ago.
