-Summary: win32 mono/mcs/cygwin 'make install' shouldn't install *.config files for dlls
+Summary: win32 gacutil shouldn't install *.config files for dlls
 The win32 mono/mcs cygwin build shouldn't install the .config files.  Or,
 the dllmaps should instead point to the windows dlls, not the unix style
 shared object names.
+------- Additional Comments From mkestner at ximian.com  2005-09-27 12:53 -------
+Since the dll.config files are a mono feature for redirecting
+DllImport statements from win32 names to non-win32 names, gacutil
+should not install them to the GAC on win32.  Doing so just forces the
+runtime to load a config file that does nothing, or forces library
+authors to add more special configuration to avoid installing them on
