Thanks for the replay, I was hoping it would be Linux cross compile because
the environment is so much easier to work with.  I am mainly a Windows
programmer who has some experience in Linux, but the Cygwin environment is a
lot harder to use than Linux.

Is there any current help that one can get setting up Cygwin?  The tutorials
I found on the mono website do not work.  I had to make some changes to get
the cross compile to work on SuSE 11.3, but has been considerably less
painful and more rewarding than the Cygwin.

Are there any resources for figuring out how to build under Cygwin for
2.8.1, like some build scripts or anything else that can be retrieved from
the Mono project on GitHub?  So far Cygwin has been a nightmare of wasted
