I don't know much about the Windows world, but IIRC, you have to say
you're targetting 'mingw' rather than 'cygwin'.  You'll then get
libmono-1.dll and libMonoPosixHelper.dll -- I don't think you can escape
the lib prefix either, but it's at least bearable.

I don't know what happens to mono if we use 'mingw' instead of 'cygwin'
when configuring (I mean, use cygwin to build, as usual, but specify
/configure i386-pc-mingw or something like that).
