build log from MacPorts on OS X 10.9

Sorry, I have no idea what product or component I'm meant to select. I'm trying to compile the mono 3.2.5 source code on OS X 10.9 Mavericks using MacPorts and after awhile it fails with this error:

/bin/sh: line 0: cd: System.Collections.Concurrent: No such file or directory
make[7]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[6]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[5]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[4]: *** [profile-do--net_4_5--all] Error 2
make[3]: *** [profiles-do--all] Error 2
make[2]: *** [all-local] Error 2

The following directories named System.Collections.Concurrent do exist:

$ find work/ -name 'System.Collections.Concurrent'

mono 3.2.4 source code does not appear to exist. mono 3.2.3 source code built successfully on the same system. I diffed the build log from 3.2.3 and the one from 3.2.5 and there weren't any differences in the output from `make` (other than the line number in two warnings) until this error appeared. I'll attach the full 3.2.5 build log from MacPorts.

What mono source distribution are you trying to build ? Were is it from ?
Comment 3 Zoltan Varga 2013-11-26 03:01:54 UTC
This was already fixed in d8e44958d4b073ec1ed065b2baaf00a92f863269, which didn't make 3.2.5.
Comment 4 Ryan Schmidt 2013-11-26 03:39:58 UTC
Thanks. I've applied that patch and still get the same error. Are there any other patches I should need to apply to be able to build 3.2.5?
Comment 5 Zoltan Varga 2013-11-26 11:21:07 UTC
That patch only fixes the generation of the source tarball, it doesn't fix the tarball itself. You might have better luck compiling from git:

Comment 6 Ryan Schmidt 2013-11-27 01:02:23 UTC
Ah. Well for the purposes of updating the mono port in MacPorts, we would really prefer to fetch a tarball, not download a git repository. When should we expect a version with a functional tarball to be released?
Comment 7 Zoltan Varga 2013-11-27 03:34:44 UTC
Hopefully 3.2.6 will have a working tarball.
Comment 8 Timotheus Pokorra 2013-12-04 00:54:57 UTC
Same problem on Linux as well, cannot build 3.2.5 from the official tarball.

I have built a fixed tarball for 3.2.5 and it is available for download here:

See also http://www.pokorra.de/2013/12/building-the-latest-mono-and-monodevelop-on-obs/ which explains how to build the tarball yourself.
Comment 9 Daniel Lo Nigro 2013-12-05 02:26:14 UTC
Can't you integrate the patch into the Mono 3.2.5 tarball on the Mono site, or remove the tarball? It's confusing and misleading having a known broken version still available on the Mono site.
Comment 10 JC 2014-01-15 02:04:31 UTC
Timothy, registered just to say... THANK YOU! \

I have been fighting this thing for hours... only to now find your post. And now it seems to have finally compiled correctly. 

Comment 11 Timotheus Pokorra 2014-01-18 12:43:41 UTC
I noticed that 3.2.6 released yesterday did not include the fix yet, so it will also not build.

I have built a fixed tarball for 3.2.6 and it is available for download here:

3.2.7 will have the fix, I just verified the file https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/mono-3.2.7-branch/mcs/class/Facades/Makefile has the line SUBDIRS = $(net_4_5_SUBDIRS)
Comment 12 Rami 2014-01-26 15:34:07 UTC
Just spent a couple of hours trying to build mono. Then I find this. Mono is, by far, the hardest simple thing to build.
Comment 13 Darren 2014-02-15 22:55:28 UTC
Likewise, just lost a couple of hours banging head against make trying to work out why 3.2.6 wouldn't build only to find this.   I really appreciate the work you guys are putting into this but I've had a tough time getting others to adopt because of the hurdle getting mono to build.  I'd suggest pulling the 3.2.6 build from the site till you get it fixed.
