[Mono-dev] correction for "Compiling Mono on WIndows' page.

There are some instructions here:
You should basically be able to open the .sln file in Visual Studio 2005 and
hit build. If you build the Debug/Release targets you'll need your glib
dependencies correctly setup (by using the described MONO_DEPENDENCIES_PREFIX
evironment variable). If you build the *_eglib targets, you should be able
to just hit build. This uses the not quite supported eglib library. This has
to be used for a Win64 build (as there is no glib on Win64 easily
available). You should then be able to use the built runtime with
corresponding class libraries. They need to be in sync. So, use cygwin to
build them, get runtime code that corresponds to a released mono and use the
class libs from the install, or build class libs on Linux (and copy or
access via a samba share). The last option is what I (and many others do).
