[Mono-devel-list] PATCH: monolite-bootstrap

Hi guys!

I've developed a patch that provides 2 additional targets for bootstrapping mono:

$ make monolite-bootstrap

will use wget to download http://www.go-mono.com/daily/monolite-latest.tar.gz and use it for bootstrapping thus eliminating needs for mono/mcs to be previously installed on the machine.

$ make local-monolite-bootstrap

will do the same but using monolite-latest.tar.gz stored locally (next to "mcs" and "mono" directories)

I've tested this patch on a clean system with no mcs installed and it rebuilds and installs fine. I had to modify RESGEN macro in the mcs/build/profiles/*.build files so it uses just-built monoresgen.exe instead of the installed one and references the libraries from class/lib/default instead of the GAC. This was necessary to properly rebuild Npgsql because it used to depend on installed System.Windows.Forms.

May I commit it ?
