Ok now that I know what that error message means i went ahead and forked
ironruby also.
I created a branch called mono and it builds successfully on my mac with

I basically applied many of the fixes from seo's patch but for the git
layout and with the sources from 18/12/2008.

I think you also have to set the MERLIN_ROOT environment variable if you're
using the git layout.
I use a .bashrc file and there I added the line
export MERLIN_ROOT='/Users/ivan/src/ironruby/merlin/main'

To get ironruby from my fork and compile it:

git clone git://github.com/casualjim/ironruby.git
cd ironruby
git checkout -b mono
git pull origin mono
cd merlin/main/Languages/Ruby
rake compile mono=1

I tried using Michael's branch but it didn't want to work for me.

Thanks Seo, Michael :)
