[Mono-devel-list] Testing out a new MCS build system

Hi everyone,

	I've uploaded a newer tarball to the same location
(http://www.newton.cx/~peter/files/mcs-0.24.99.tar.gz, 4.2 megs, MD5
65202057436687a99fe06c00754bf11a). Changes:

	* New 'make monocharge-mini' target that only includes the files needed
to bootstrap (I think: I put in mcs.exe, corlib, System, and System.Xml)

	* New directory build/ holding build-related files such as library.make

	* Makefile fragments and response files land in one place, build/deps/,
so they don't litter the whole tree

	* Instead of choosing a platform, it is autodetected or set by the
environment variables PLATFORM; this means that the same tree can be
used to build on both windows and linux. Although there might be some
issues with needing to regenerate response files. Definitely could use
some testing on win32

	* Skeleton support for build profiles; 'make PROFILE=myprofile' is
possible, although now only a default do-nothing profile is supplied.

	* A few documentation updates.

	Share and enjoy,

Peter Williams                          peter at newton.cx
