[Mono-devel-list] Building Mono from cvs on Windows

These dependencies are also problematic on other platforms. I
can't see cairo working on HPUX for example... indeed is it
tied to XFree86 only? Also I actually presume if anyone
is using Windows they wouldn't want an X based version.

The immediate problem is the build system for the runtime doesn't
easily support building subsets of libraries (without hacking
the Makefiles).

The next level problem is of course this precludes various modules
running on a bunch of platforms which may or may not matter to you.
