+Bug#: 50657
+Product: Mono: Runtime
+Version: unspecified
+OS: unknown
+OS Details: Windows 2000 all service packs + cygwin
+Status: NEW   
+Severity: 040 One week
+Priority: Normal

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: mono-build-w32.sh breaks when using DOS path
+Description of Problem:
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. install new Cygwin (6th Nov 2003)
+2. get http://www.go-mono.org/mono-build-w32.sh
+3. fix cygwin as per Bug 50654
+4. start mono-build-w32.sh
+5. after a while the build system tries to use the prefix cooked by mono-
+build-w32.sh and fails, because it is a DOS path and not a cygwin path
+Actual Results:
+no Makefile target (*.exe, *.dll, *.dll.a, etc...) can be copied to any 
+cygwin directory because they are in DOS format 
+(C:/Projects/cygwin/usr/local/install) instead of cygwin format 
+Expected Results:
+There should be 2 target variables: one for the specific purpose of 
+building Mono using cygwin, and another to create executables and 
+libraries that do not need cygwin.
+At the moment the mono-build-w32.sh is broken
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+are the changes made to mono-build-w32.sh ever checked for real by 
+somebody who restarts everything from fresh?

+oops, it seems that the mono-build-w32.sh assumes that you already 
+have built mcs.
+This should be documented, and the script should cvs update the mcs 
+as well as the mono.

+Also need to add install/bin and install/lib to the PATH prior to 
+starting if you use make instead of the mono-build-w32.sh
+------- Additional Comments From fgenolini@hotmail.com  2003-11-12 04:49 -------
+If you download mcs and build it under cygwin, then the mono-build-
+w32.sh will work (as long as mcs buid was successful, which it is not 
+at the moment :-{ )
