messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
New toolchain, which is default for some distributions (like Arch Linux) makes it hard to build Mono, there are errors:
> runtime/Makefile.am:2: error: support for Cygnus-style trees has been removed
see http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/automake-patches/2012-04/msg00228.html for reference.
There are also other issues that cause troubles, like:
configure.in:17: error: 'AM_CONFIG_HEADER': this macro is obsolete.
You should use the 'AC_CONFIG_HEADERS' macro instead.
/usr/share/aclocal-1.13/obsolete-err.m4:12: AM_CONFIG_HEADER is expanded from...
configure.in:365: error: 'AM_PROG_CC_STDC': this macro is obsolete.
You should simply use the 'AC_PROG_CC' macro instead.
Also, your code should no longer depend upon 'am_cv_prog_cc_stdc',
but upon 'ac_cv_prog_cc_stdc'.
which were promoted to errors from warnings in newer autoconf (don't know exact version).
Fixed in master/mono-2-10.
Debian stable, testing and sid use automake 1.11.6 which generates a compile error with the patch created for mono 3.0.3
Could you paste the error message ?

eliminating the patch for automake 1.3 works perfectly
Should be fixed in master/2.10. The changes broke a check in autogen.sh so autoheader was not ran.
esos mismo cambios se deben realizar en el autogen.sh de eglib "eglib/autogen.sh" para que eglib compile
these same changes should be made in the eglib autogen.sh "eglib / autogen.sh" to compile eglib line 116
