Actually, 'autogen.sh' is used in SVN snapshots to (re-)generate
configure, Makefile.in and other build stuff from configure.in and
In your case, just edit configure.in and run 'autoreconf', assuming you
have a fairly recent GNU build system setup (autoconf 2.59, automake 1.8
or 1.9) (you may need 'autoreconf -f' to force it).

At least I got a clue where my problems come from.
However I do _not_ have a autogen.sh. (I use the mono-126.96.36.199 package)
Atm I just patched configure itself just to see what happens next.
I know that this is a very bad solution and I'll fix it.
However it would be nice to know what autogen script does exactly.
Once again thanks,
