Thanks for the explanation now everything is clear.:)

I was newer able to create an istaller. Could you tell me how should it be
done? It seems that the makefile is able to build it but it requires some
NSIS tool for Cygwin I was unable to find.

Could you please look at my previous message ([Mono-devel-list] [PATCH]
Remove cyg prefix from native DLLs on Windows) and review the patch and if
you know more about the advantages of targetting MinGW or whether it should
be used at all please tell you opinion about MingGW.
