+Summary: native compiler just can't work as expected
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what 
+you are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. just executing "mono --aot program.exe"
+Actual Results:
+result in the best case will be anyProgram.exe.dll compiled with ..
+gcc -shared --dll -mno-cygwin -o %s %s.o
+Expected Results:
+anyProgram.exe as native code
+How often does this happen? 
+always because compilation parameters are hardcoded inside "mono.dll"
+Additional Information:
+the best case is if you can get the output dll because you have already 
+installed all the stuff necessary to make the compilation chain to work 
+so you'll get the output as dll anyway because the compilation string is 
+hardcoded as "gcc -shared --dll -mno-cygwin -o %s %s.o" and the file 
+extension will be always .dll because of (I guess) same style 
+sobstitution method
+I did manipulate this string directly into mono.dll removing --dll and 
+using -mwindows switch instead , so I had a compilation producing a 
+desired .exe file but unfortunately won't work with just that , maybe 
+only because of some other switch or combination of is needed or maybe 
+because won't work at all anyway ...
+this feature will be very nice if finally works correctly .. hope 
+somebody fix it so we can check it out
