Compiling opensim on gentoo

I had installed a Gentoo server from scratch today, so here is a quick summary of what you need to do to compile opensim on gentoo:

1) install the necessary packages

emerge subversion
emerge mono
emerge nant
emerge gdiplus

2) check out the source from the SVN and compile:

svn co svn://svn.opensimulator.org/opensim/trunk
cd trunk
sh runprebuild.sh

3) go to bin and launch:

cd bin
mono OpenSim.exe

4) answer the questions.

5) have fun! :)

svn command has changed to
svn co http://opensimulator.org/svn/opensim/trunk opensim
for the most up to date version.

You might have to compile cairo with the USE flag X, something like:
USE="X" emerge -av cairo
Then emerge mono...
