-Summary: Fails to build from CVS
+Summary: Create a failsafe way to bootstrap
 I tried to build mono and mcs from the current CVS. I have already a
 working mono/mcs installation from 14.01.2004 in /usr/{bin,lib}. Having
 a read-only /usr, I try to build in two steps.

+Yes, we know and admit it is quite hard to get a build started. 
+Really, we need a script that does it `just right'.
+Some of your errors look familar, but I do not remember the 
+incantations to solve them ;-). Just comments on the methods:
+`the only supported way is running "make fullbuild" from the CVS tree'
+It is a known issue that fullbuild basically is of no use if you are 
+trying to bootstrap.
+`just built from the daily source (there are no mcs dailies and see 
+above, not possible to build from CVS)'
+The daily source gives you the MCS binaries and the mono source code. 
+THe mcs code is xplatform, so it is ok to just get the cil. The C 
+code of course needs to be compiled on your box. configure make will 
+Again, we do need to work on this.
