[Mono-dev] Windows/CygWin: Mono doesn't work after compiling

Thanks for the tip!
I tried adding /cygdrive/c/Programs/Mono-2.0/bin to the end of my path, but it didn't seem to help.  When I added it to the beginning of my path, it helped a lot, but I think that's because I was using only the pre-compiled binaries :)
I noticed that I've got a lot of junk in my PATH, went back & cleaned it up, and now have just:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/cygdrive/e/Pers/Updates/Mono/CustomBuilt/install/bin:/cygdrive/c/Programs/Mono-2.0/bin
mono -V (and mono --versio) still produce no output (at all).
(Also, once the build is done, isn't it supposed to produce (or copy from the build directories) everything it needs, so that the new Mono build is completely self-sufficient?
Also (just to make sure this doesn't get lost on this thread) - are there post-build verification (unit) tests that can be run, to verify that my new build works?
