The mono 3.2.5 tarball is broken. I'm trying to follow these instructions for building a corrected tarball:
Running "make dist" fails for me on OS X 10.9 Mavericks:
top_distdir="../mono-3.2.5" distdir="../mono-3.2.5/docs" \
make: ../mono-3.2.5/docs/sources: No such file or directory
This seems to be because docs/Makefile.am contains these lines:
cp sources/* $(distdir)/sources
cp svgs/* $(distdir)/svgs
cp HtmlAgilityPack/* $(distdir)/HtmlAgilityPack
Perhaps the variable $(mkdir_p) is empty.
FYI `mkdir -p` does work on OS X.
You might have an old version of automake on your system, what does mono/install-sh point to ?
I had automake 1.12.1 installed with MacPorts; I downgraded to that version because the official tarball seemed to have been made with that version.
$ ls -l mono/install-sh
lrwxr-xr-x 1 rschmidt staff 41 Dec 4 01:23 mono/install-sh -> /opt/local/share/automake-1.12/install-sh
I have 1.14 and it works ok.
Sorry about that. Confirmed that it does work with automake 1.14. I figured since the official tarball was made with 1.12.1 I should use that, but I guess there is some OS X-specific problem with 1.12.1.
automake 1.12.2 works too. From the automake NEWS file:
Bugs fixed in 1.12.2:
* Bugs introduced by 1.12.1:
- Automake provides once again the '$(mkdir_p)' make variable and the
'@mkdir_p@' substitution (both as simple aliases for '$(MKDIR_P)'),
for better backward-compatibility.
