build log

When using a parallel mono environment on Ubuntu 13.04 & 13.10, mono-tools fails to build.

The environment has Mono 3.2.3, libgdiplus, gtk-sharp-(2.12-branch), gnome-sharp, gnome-desktop-sharp, gio-sharp, MonoDevelop 4.1.7, all built/installed successfully, but mono-tools fails with the errors in the attached log.  Everything except gtk-sharp was built from the current git repositories.

Mono-tools 2.10 also fails to build in this environment (it complains gsharp/Makefile.in is missing during autogen.sh), and the mono-tools 2.11 zip appears to have always been missing a ton of necessary files.  So, it doesn't look like mono-tools can be built by any avenue.

Are the any chances to get mono-tools compilable on linux? They are in uncompilable state for a couple of years.

Currently admin.exe from docbrowser can't be compiled if ENABLE_GTKHTML is set.
