In the new build system, we want to de able to perform two different
type of builds:
*) a bootstrapping build where the newly compiled assemblies/compilers
are used in the next steps of the build
*) a normal build where all the stuff is built using the installed
libraries and compilers

In the first case we need MONO_PATH set as needed, in the second case it
should not be set. For running the tests, I assume MONO_PATH could
always be set to the just-built assemblies, though I don't understand
why it shouldn't work when it's unset, maybe there is some underlying
