+Product: Mono: Runtime
+OS Details: Windows 2000 all service packs + cygwin
+Severity: 040 One week
+Summary: mono-build-w32.sh not compatible with cygwin
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what
+you are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+mono-build-w32.sh not compatible with cygwin
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. install from fresh OS, .Net SDK and cygwin (6th Nov 2003)
+2. download mono-build-w32.sh from http://www.go-mono.org/mono-build-w32.sh
+3. run it as documented in
+PART 2 - Installing Mono and Choosing the IDE
+Chapter 3 - Getting Started
+Installation on Windows
+Building Mono under Windows
+Breaks in great many places, mainly because the configure.in of libgc and
+others rely on an old autoconf (2.53) where now cygwin uses 2.57
+Mono should build as documented and script file should always cope with
+latest full cygwin install
+How often does this happen?
+The page for the "OS Details" link on
+does not exist

+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...
