Sadly to say, neither beta1, 2 nor 3 are not good enough to be used for
windows installation from sources. The build system varied every time
immediate before the releases.

Also mono-build-w32.sh won't work since it now requires gacutil to be
installed (AFAIK; That thus require builtin mcs package under the
parallel directory). Raja made the makefile runnable "make bootstrap"
under windows, so the fix should be not so hard. Tonight I'll try to
fix that script (I cannot use my working XP box since MS csc is too
broken to run the script successfully).
