[Mono-dev] monolite URL

Hey Alex,
monolite is built and uploaded automatically by Wrench: https://wrench.mono-project.com/Wrench/ViewTable.aspx?host_id=21&lane_id=4&page=0&limit=20, the issue I think was that the build was broken there so a new monolite didn't get uploaded, this is now fixed.
The thing to keep in mind is that the corlib version inside monolite needs to match the runtime version or bootstrapping the classlib build won't work, so you can't just keep an old monolite and use it to build newer Mono (at least that's how I understood it).
If you don't want to rely on monolite, another option is to just install a recent Mono release and use that for bootstrapping (e.g. right now the build still works with Mono 3.2).
