+Summary: make run-test failures on cygwin
+make run-test has 21 failures on cygwin. 6 of them are caused by wrong 
+windowsMcsPath and windowsMonoPath when running with mono-wrapper. The 
+attached patch searches the mono-wrapper dirs after the normal dirs.
+This is only a partial solution, and the right solution would be to get 
+rid of those windowsMcsPath and windowsMonoPath altogether. All code 
+dealing with those variables is a hack, especially the code in the static 
+I tried to see, why is there different code for windows platform. I found 
+that on cygwin 'mono' on $PATH is a bash script and not an executable. But 
+if I make mcs.StartInfo.UseShellExecute=true then mcs.Start() fails 
+because UseShellExecute can not be used when the input is redirected. If 
+this could be worked around, then windows-specific code could be removed.
