 If you go to /usr/autotool rename stable into foo and then create a 
 soft link from devel to stable, this causes autconf to use 
 the "devel" version.

+Items needed to make Mono on XP...
+Be sure to have the default cygwin installed.  Make sure that when 
+you set a user up, there are no spaces in the name. Bad redhat 
+engineer who allows a space in input for user name when it breaks 
+things horribly later.  In addition, make sure the following 
+packages are installed as well:
+perl(interpreters), wget(web), libtool(devel), unzip (), libiconv
+(devel), gcc (devel), lots of hidden gcc components must be 
+installed too.  I am not sure how I got as far as I did now...
+Copy /bin/aclocal-1.7 to aclocal-1.4 (this does not exist)
+Copy /bin/automake-1.4 to automake-1.4 (this does not exist either)
+Copy CC1.exe into /bin (not sure why this didn't copy into a bin 
+directory through the install)
+Be sure to let people know about the config.log in the /home/mono 
+directory, because with this many dependancies (i.e. - cygwin), it 
+will most assuredly will not work.
+Script in home directory doesn't work, because autoconf has a 
+wrapper which returns a different value for --version than the 
+actual autoconf program does.  This wrapper returns a different 
+value when in the mono directory, and is less than the acceptable 
+value, which in-turn produces a FATAL ERROR.
+Remove -V option from gcc as it causes the compiler to break, the -V 
+option must be first in line, not last.  Best results are with this 
+removed altogether.  Make sure configure.in in the home/user/mono 
+directory as well as /mono/configure are changed.  Very annoying to 
+copy over these files every time the script is run.
+cannot open crtbegin.o: No such file or directory -- caused because 
+mingw has been chosen rather than cygwin -- the compiler is looking 
+in .../i686-pc-mingw32, rather than ../i686-pc-cygwin, where the 
+file really is...
