msys could be a better choice because cygwin uses it's own runtime that 
has to be avoided by using -mno-cygwin and I believe that msys is easier 
to install but I'm not sure that it's currently properly supported by Mono.

In the previous version of the buildbot page there was a button to force 
a build immediately. In the current version I didn't find a similar 
functionality. Is it possible to make a build when I want to?
