Awesome to see you could fork and build. I'm trying tod o same and stuck on the problem that autogen.sh wants the Mono 2.0 GAC and your git repo clearly states it needs 3, and I have 4.5 and well, what gives? I'd be mighty please if you cast your eye over my issue:

I've been working on my copy of Banshee over the holiday season and

isn't supported by it. On the other hand you get kinetic scrolling and
it feels pretty snappy.
A few bug fixes went into this too, if you want to take a look, the
work is on branch feature/lite:
