[Mono-dev] Trouble compiling Mono on Cygwin

Hi Timo,

You should run ./autoconf.sh before anything else (particularly configure).

My standard procedure for compiling under Cygwin is:

1) Make sure all 4.x versions of GCC are uninstalled.
2) Replace my make.exe in /usr/bin with
3) Alias gcc to gcc-3 in .bash_profile.
4) Clone the Mono repo.
5) ./autogen.sh
6) ./configure --options...
7) make; make install

Hope this helps.
