I would guess it's a badly named MonoPosixHelper.dll, probably due to
myriad issues with libtool + cygwin for mingw32 targets.

IIRC, a few months ago the default libtool name under cygwin was
cygMonoPosixHelper-0.dll, so given the s/cyg//g script mentioned a week
or two ago, the incorrect MonoPosixHelper.dll naming is probably an
artifact of that.
