I am unable to build mono from current cvs on windows.
I heard this was because of dependencies recently added, such as, cairo and

When does one think these dependencies can be added to the mono build
scripts, such as,
mono-build.sh for linux/unix
mono-build-w32.sh  for windows?

**Error**: aclocal failed. This may mean that you have not
installed all of the packages you need, or you may need to
set ACLOCAL_FLAGS to include "-I $prefix/share/aclocal"
for the prefix where you installed the packages whose
macros were not found

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As far as I know, I installed all the cygwin stuff including the devel
I may have to drop building mono on Windows XP Pro and go with Red Hat Linux
